Manual alert webhook

Here's how to set up a manual alert webhook. Once configured, you can create an alert in a channel by using a Slack slash command, create incidents tied to those alerts, and invoke Transposit actions to remediate the incidents.

Transposit webhook setup#

  1. On the Transposit site, navigate to Settings gear icon > Webhooks, and click Add webhook. Choose "Manual alerts." All incoming alerts will always appear in the Activity feed. It is optional to also set a Slack channel for the alert to appear in. (Note: The Slack channel must already exist; create it before adding the webhook.) Click Add.
  2. Find the webhook you just added, and copy the "Endpoint URL."

Slack slash command setup#

  1. Go to your Slack's app page, search for "Slash Commands" and select the app with the same name.

Note: The text provided as an argument to the slash command will be the title of the alert.
