Slack integration

Slack is an integrated app that we offer out of the box. Installing the Slack app is allowing us to communicate with your designated Slack channel.

You can repeat this as often as you want, although only once per account.

From the dropdown, you can install an app. Slack will be amongst the default integration options. After clicking on Slack, a popup will be shown.

Providing the channel name

In the popup, you should provide the name of the slack channel. This could be an existing channel. If the channel does not exist yet, you can check the checkbox to allow us to create the channel automatically. See the screenshot below, which is showing the popup and the two form fields:

  • an input for the channel name;
  • a checkbox to indicate if RUMvision should create the channel while in the process.

Configuring Slack

This section describes the steps you'll need to perform in Slack to authorize RUMvision to send messages.


The next step in the installation is to authenticate the RUMvision app and its permissions. This can be done in the Slack splash screen that will follow after clicking the "Authenticate" button in the initial popup.

The new Slack splash screen will look as following, where the requested actions to perform will be adjusted when you decided to allow us to create a new channel:


After clicking "Allow", you will be redirected back to your profile page. If a Slack error occured, you will be presented with the error in red. In other words, you won't miss it.

If adding our the RUMvision app to slack succeeded, you will see a confirmation as well. And we will remember you to join the channel, if we created one.

App options

After installation, you can test, pause or delete the Slack integration.

Testing Slack

After installation, you can test the app by sending a test message. You should be able to see this option when going to the app's dropdown menu. Over there, click on "send test message" to send a test message right away.

Pausing Slack

Via the same dropdown menu, you will be able to delete the whole connection between RUMvision and your Slack workspace and channel. Instead of deleting it, you can also disable notifications. This might be convenient when you just want to pause reports and messages, without needing to delete it all together.

The screenshot below is illustrating where you can find the dropdown menu with its options:

Deleting the Slack app

When deleting the app, a confirmation message will be send to the channel that was used during the configuration. The app will be removed and will no longer be able to send notifications.
