Slack: PPA Integration
This plugin allows you to use incoming webhooks in Slack from a PPA task.
Before using any of the actions in Incoming Webhooks, you must:
- Create a new Slack app for PPA
- Enable incoming webhooks for that app
- Generate a webhook URL to use
New Slack App
Create a new Slack app on this page of their website.
You'll need to:
- Supply a name for the app
- Select a Slack workspace
Enable Incoming Webhooks
Once your new app is created:
Click Incoming Webhooks in the Add features and functionality section
Move the slider over to enable the feature
Click Add New Webhook to Workspace
Select the channel you wish to post messages to from PPA
You'll see a freshly generated webhook URL & an example cURL command for testing.
Store Webhook URL
The generated URL is what you'll supply to each action in Incoming Webhooks.
We recommend storing this URL somewhere safe, like the Hashicorp Vault shipped with PPA.
