Slack connects people and teams to each other and the information they need, making it easier than ever to collaborate and communicate across departments. With Cutover, you can post messages to Slack to update colleagues on progress or create awareness of your runbook.
What can the Slack integration do?
Post messages to Slack using your Cutover runbook using Slack’s Web API. To do this, simply create a new task and set the Task Type as “Post Message to Slack”. The message and channel information can be viewed in the Task Detail panel. Just enter your desired message and specify the channel you’d like your message to be posted to.
When the task is started, the status of the message being sent is updated in real time in Cutover and in Slack.
First, Slack will need to be added to your Cutover instance within our Global Settings menu. Ensure that you have enabled the appropriate permissions in order to post to the channels you’d like to send messages to. Refer to this page for further information.
