Thousands of software teams use Slack to collaborate on projects and chat in real time. Maybe yours is one of them! If so, where better to get updates on the status of your Speedway API monitors than a Slack room?
Whenever one of your API monitors fails or recovers, Speedway will post a message to a Slack room of your choosing, so the right people on your team know about it and can react accordingly.
You'll get a link to the monitor right there in the chat, so you don't waste valuable seconds or minutes figuring out what happened.
Better yet, your team will have a place in Slack to acknowledge the issue and discuss how to fix it quickly.
And of course, you'll want to create at least one Speedway monitor if you haven't already, so Speedway will have something to tell Slack about. If you haven't done that, set up a monitor.
Connecting the integration is a one time process that takes just a few minutes. Here's how to go about it:
Now that the Slack integration is enabled, Speedway will post messages to the Slack room you selected, every time a monitor fails or recovers.
Once you've got Speedway and Slack talking to each other, you can test the integration by creating a Speedway monitor that points to an invalid location, submits invalid data, or is otherwise broken. As soon as the monitor runs and fails, Speedway will post a message to Slack, typically within seconds. When you fix the monitor and it runs again, Speedway will post a recovery message to the same channel.
The Speedway team supports this integration, and we want you to get the most out of it! If you have trouble or feature requests, please reach out at email@example.com and we'll be happy to assist.
