Send alert messages to Slack. All the Slack attachment fields are fully customizable with fixed values or values from the search results. In addition, this add-on can make use of a proxy regardless of how Splunk is configured.

Full documentation can be found at

slackalert is a custom alert add-on for Splunk to generate Slack messages.

Before this alert can be used, you have to enable incoming webhooks in Slack for the community that is going to receive the alert messages. Look at for details on incoming webhooks for Slack

If the Trigger setting is set to Once, all result events are combined into a single Slack message. If the Trigger setting is set to For each result, then each result will get its own Slack message.

When using the Trigger setting Once, consider using the slackalert macro system.

When you install the add-on, you can run the setup to configure default values for new alerts.

Both setup and alert configuration consist of the following sections:

Slack connect settings. Here you configure the URL, hook token and proxy settings
Mandatory settings. The add-on requires the search result to contain at least a severity field. The fieldname can be configured in the alert and defaults to "severity". Here you can also set either the message field or the message itself.
Optional settings. This section is used to override the channel for the configured webhook
Severity color settings. Set the colorbar of the Slack message according to the severity value
Additional fields. Any field that is returned by the search can be added to the Slack message
Message format settings. The last section in the setup and alert configuration contains information that can be used to construct the Slack message. (for more information on these fields have a look at
