kubewatch is a Kubernetes watcher that currently publishes notification to Slack. Run it in your k8s cluster, and you will get event notifications in a slack channel.


$ helm install stable/kubewatch


This chart bootstraps a kubewatch deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install stable/kubewatch --name my-release

The command deploys kubewatch on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the kubewatch chart and their default values.

image.tag Image tag {VERSION}
image.pullPolicy Image pull policy Always
nodeSelector node labels for pod assignment {}
podAnnotations annotations to add to each pod {}
podLabels additional labesl to add to each pod {}
replicaCount desired number of pods 1
rbac.create If true, create & use RBAC resources true
serviceAccount.create If true, create a serviceAccount true existing ServiceAccount to use (ignored if rbac.create=true) ``

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install stable/kubewatch --name my-release \"#bots",slack.token="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install stable/kubewatch --name my-release -f values.yaml

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Create a Slack bot

Open to create a new Slack bot. The API token can be found on the edit page (it starts with xoxb-).

Invite the Bot to your channel by typing /join @name_of_your_bot in the Slack message area.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
