Publishing Incidents via Slack

Publishing Incidents to a Status Page Using Slack

In addition to using the web interface for publishing incidents to status pages, you can also accomplish the same thing without leaving Slack.

To publish an incident using Slack, do the following:

From Slack, navigate to the Slack channel specific to that incident, and type the command:

/rootly statuspage

A dialog will be presented for you to choose the appropriate status pages where you want the incident published.

This will also be your chance to add a useful title and description your external users can better understand. Add the appropriate information in the title and event fields.

Select a status for the incident, and then click Publish.
