Integrating Runscope API Monitoring with Slack

Slack is group chat and IM built for teams.

Setting up Slack

From Slack, go to your account's App Directory and add a new Runscope integration:

Setting up the Runscope Integration

Now head back to your Runscope account, click on your profile on the top-right and select Connected Services:

Runscope connected services.

Find Slack in the list and select Connect Slack:

On the settings screen, paste the Slack Webhook URL from the previous steps and enter a Channel Name (that is just for reference and to help differentiate between multiple Slack integrations). Select your notification preferences and click on Connect Account:

For the final step, go to a Runscope API test, open the environment settings, select Integrations, and activate your Slack integration:

Save your test, and you're all set up! Test result notifications should now be sent to your Slack channel:
