  • Slack -> PagerTree (keyword trigger) - See Slack Outgoing Webhooks.

How It Works

Messages are sent to Slack Incoming Webhooks that post to channels, making sure the right channels are notified of alerts.
  • When an alert in PagerTree is opened/acknowledged/resolved/dropped, PagerTree will post a message to a channel of your choice.
