Send a message to Slack in response to a saved search. Allows formatting of the message to include Splunk search results and job metadata.

Splunk Custom Alert Action to send events to Slack

This app provides an Alert Action that posts matching events to Slack using the Slack Bot User API.


Splunk 6.3 or later.

Setting up

  • Install the Splunk app through the GUI or by extracting it to your apps directory and restarting Splunk.
  • Configure an alert through the normal means (GUI or savedsearches.conf) and add a slack_webhook_alert action with the following parameters:
    • slack_webhook: Slack Incoming Webhook URL
    • slack_message: Text of the Slack message to send. Slack formatting and \n for a newline are accepted, as well as Splunk token substitutions.

Note: If your saved search returns multiple events, this alert will only publish the first to Slack. To get around this, use the "Once Per Event" mode when configuring in SplunkWeb or alert.digest_mode=0 in savedsearches.conf.


The following libraries are bundled with this script.
