Sending Errors to Slack

Send an error to Slack is a very simple process, and we take advantage of their Incoming WebHooks feature.

Incoming WebHooks

Send data into Slack in real-time.


Incoming Webhooks are a quick way to post your Error messages and Exceptions from ErrLog.IO into a nominated Slack channel.

From within your Slack account, simply visit the Manage Apps page, to create a new custom integration.

 

Selecting a Slack Channel

Select the channel you want your Error message to go to, and click the Add Incoming Webhook Integration button.

Copy the Webhook URL

Slack will then generate a Webhook URL that you can use with ErrLog.IO. Make a copy of this URL. An example is shown below.
