You need to create a new "Incoming webhook" URL to connect Slack with Notifuse.

To create a new "Incoming webhook", go to the "Apps & Integrations" directory, and search for "Incoming WebHooks". Click the "Configure" button, and "Add Configuration". Choose the default Slack #channel you want to receive the messages in, and save.

Available settings

The Slack settings are defined at the template level from the Notifuse interface when you create/update a template.

If you don't plan to create your templates via API, or overwrite some settings at the last minute when you send a message (via API), you can skip the following table.

However it can be useful to overwrite some settings when you send a message from the API, like the attachments parameter to attach a formatted content.

The settings you can overwrite when you send a message via API are marked in the Available in column.
