Forge: Monitoring Notifications With Slacktips laravel
When configuring a new monitor, you must supply an email address that will be notified when a monitor turns from healthy to unhealthy, or back again. A request that I've seen a couple of times is to be able to use Slack notifications for monitors.
As it happens, this is already possible using Slack's "Send email to Slack" functionality. Once you've created a new email address for the channel, you can use it to create your new Monitor:
Now, when the Monitor triggers, you'll receive a notification in your chosen channel:
You can also customise how emails look within Slack too:
Of course, you're not limited to only using this in Forge's Monitoring feature, you can use this for other services too.
