External Notifications, formerly called Webhooks, are a way to receive a notification or to take action based on data that we send via an external notification. Setting up an external notification to the popular messaging app Slack is now even easier!
From the left-hand menu, select Alarms > Configuration. From this page, you can choose to edit an existing alarm or create a new alarm to configure the notification.
We currently have support for Slack as a way to send a message, however, the option to choose a custom URL is also present.
For guidance on how to enable incoming Webhooks for Slack, please follow this guide:

Example of Slack Notification:
A direct link to the Alarm Log will also be available, and you can visit and edit the Alarm itself if necessary.
