This Heroku-targetted Node.JS app handles receiving various Amazon SNS messages from services like Cloudwatch, autoscaling, and Stackdriver. Each message is converted into a rich Slack message and sent to the specified channel.
Deploy the code to Heroku under your own app. This should be as easy as cloning,
heroku apps:create <NAME>, and pushing.
To authorize your application with Slack, go to the
new integration page and create an Incoming
Webhook. You'll get a url in the format of
https://hooks.slack.com/services/TOKEN. Take note of this token
and give the Heroku app your Slack information:
$ heroku config:set SLACK_TOKEN=yourintegrationtoken
(Note that Slack lets you customize your integration's image and name. This
bridge generally overrides the image and name dynamically, so you don't need
to customize the integration for
Once this is set, you just need to add the bridge to your SNS topics. Use the
https://<slack-sns>.herokuapp.com/channel/noise to send messages
#noise channel on Slack.
Handlers are small functions which take a message in and format it for Slack.
They are defined in
handlers.js and referenced from
web.js in the
function. When creating a handler the most important thing to do is return an
object with a
text field. All other fields are optional. For inspiration and
help making a new handler, check out the existing ones!
