How to configure Slack for integration with ONEiO

Introduction

This document shows an example of what needs to be done in Slack to make it integration-ready with the endpoint in your ONEiO. Note also, that the amount of fields used in integrations might vary. 

Slack Endpoint Type in ONEiO supports only messages towards Slack as of now. Bi-directional communication will be introduced in a later release. 

For any questions related setting up the integration, please send mail to support@oneio.cloud.

After you have created the webhook, simply add a new Entity Type to your endpoint in ONEiO and add the webhook's URL to it (everything after https://hooks.slack.com)

Route messages to Slack

To be able to send messages to Slack you just need to create a rule that has your selected tool as source and the Slack as target. Target attributes can be seen in the picture below. You can use the source systems attributes as values as you can do in any other ONEiO use case.

In this example, an update in Freshservice causes a message to be posted in Slack.
