Slack is available as a pre-built integration in the Lens AppIQ dashboard. You can leverage this integration to configure hooks based on application-related events.


Creating a Slack Application

Before creating the webhook on Lens AppIQ, you need to make sure a webhook and an application are available on Slack. Lens AppIQ will leverage those as the integration points with your Slack workspace to deliver the event messages.


Slack Webhooks

You can find detailed information about Slack webhooks and applications here.

Use the following link to create an application: Creating a New Application


Select From scratch, which will then prompt you to enter the application name and workspace. Once you enter both, click on Create App.

Creating your application should direct you to the following page:


You will need to now enable this application to receive incoming webhooks. You can do it by clicking on Incoming Webhooks and then clicking on the toggle button to enable it:

By enabling incoming webhooks, you will now see the option to add a webhook URL to your application. To create a new webhook URL for your application, click on Add New Webook To Workspace, which will then ask you to select which channel in your workspace should be used to delivering messages.

Select the desired channel where Lens AppIQ will be delivering application updates and click on Allow.

Save the Webhook URL as this will be the URL you will need to enter when integrating Lens AppIQ with your Slack application.

Integrating Lens AppIQ and Slack

You can set up the integration through the application details page, using the Webhooks tab.

By clicking on the + Create button, you should see the following options:

Enter a name for your webhook and a meaningful description. Select the triggers of your preference, and select the provider "Slack". Enter the URL saved in the previous step

Click Create to complete the webhook creation.

Once created, you will see the new Slack integration in the list of webhooks for your application, and Lens AppIQ will automatically start tracking the events associated with the triggers selected
