Slack Plugin Templates


#1

Hey all,

I’ve currently configured a slack integration with sensu for alerting purposes, however the messages sent are a bit cluttered and I’d like to be able to format them nicely. I noticed there to be capabilities for templates via .erb files. I’m not certain this is what I’m looking for, but I believe so. However, I couldn’t find any readily available.

Can someone advise?

Thanks,

Austin

Can you link to which slack integration you are using? (there are a couple options)

I am using sensu-plugins-slack that’s advertised on the sensu documentation.

For that using a custom template is kinda in the readme:
https://github.com/sensu-plugins/sensu-plugins-slack#payload_template-example

You’ll have to put that template text into a file and then set the “payload_template” option in the handler configuration to point to that file.

And of course edit that template at will to meet your needs.
