Personalized New Relic Dashboard App in Slack

This tiny Bolt ⚡️ app demonstrates how to build Slack apps utilizing Slack's new features and New Relic APIs. This app displays the list of New Relic applications and Slack users can choose one to check from the list. Also, users can run NRQL (New Relic Query Language) queries in modals (=without leaving Slack).

App Home

Slack apps can leverage any of Block Kit, a collection of powerful built-in UI components, to make Home Tab not only informative, furthermore interactive. This app illustrates how to build a kind of dashboard UI and also place buttons and drop-down menus in a user-friendly manner.

Modals

Modals are dynamic and interactive space for collecting data from Slack users and displaying information. Needless to say, we can use Block Kit in modals. In addition, Input blocks are available only in modals.
