You will need to specify a Slack channel to use for this integration. The default is usually #general if you haven't set up another channel.

 

Note: You can include any of the data captured by the Samanage incident in the action fields. They can be selected from the Insert fields buttons.

 

11. Click Save + finish to complete the Zap.

 

Now test the Zap to make sure it works. Once you're satisfied with the results, you're all set to start automatically creating Slack alert messages from your Samanage incidents as they are created.

 

Note: If you ever want to change this Samanage to Slack integration, just go to your Zapier dashboard and tweak anything you?d like.
