Container alerting via Slack

By Eric Carter - MAY 4, 2018


Slack notification setup

We love Slack and I know many of you do too. So now you can monitor containers (and your apps!) without ever leaving Slack, using our really easy-to-use integration for alerts from Sysdig Monitor or Sysdig Secure.

You can set up your Slack integration in settings -> notifications.

The integration only requires you to authenticate your Slack domain and the channel you’d like to send alerts to.

Slack authorization

Now you can modify the available options as you’d like regarding the notification flow. You can also fire a test message sent to the channel or recipient you set up once you hit save.

Alerts will appear in Slack, well-formatted, and most importantly with a link back to Sysdig Monitor or Sysdig Secure that allows you to dive into the issue or event that triggered the alert. The result? Simpler, faster container monitoring, security, and troubleshooting.
