Slack Integration

Does your team use Slack? Vigil now includes Slack integration, so you can get your alerts right in your Slack channels. Slack integration is available in the Business Vigil plan. We are in the queue to be included as an official Slack integration partner, but if you want to get hooked up sooner, here are the instructions for setting up a custom inbound webhook for Slack.

If you go to your Slack account, in the left-hand menu there is an "Integrations" option. If you select that, you will get a screen that has a long list of existing integrations. Scroll to the bottom and there is a section called "DIY Integrations & Customizations". Choose the "Incoming WebHooks" option, and click the "Add" button.

On the next page, you can select which channel you want messages posted to, and then select "Add Incoming WebHooks Integration".

You will get a page with information on how to configure the webhook, but all we need is the Webhook URL. It will look something like:

https://hooks.slack.com/services/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

You can then go to the Vigil web client at https://client.vigil-app.com and select "Notifications" in the upper right. Click the + button next to "Configurations" and select the Slack option, and enter your Webhook URL.

You should now have alerts delivered to your Slack channel. Let us know how it works, and we'll post an update as soon as our official integration is completed by the Slack developers.
