Slack Status Monitoring

Overview

Slack is a collaborative messaging tool. LogicMonitor’s Slack Status monitoring package leverages the Slack Status API to monitor and alert on incident, outage, and maintenance events for the various Slack services.

Note: See the Slack status website for a representation of the services being monitored. ​​​

Setup Requirements

Add Resource Into Monitoring

Add a Slack host into monitoring. Since this is a service and there is no physical resource to add into monitoring, you’ll need to manually create a new resource. Ensure that the resource contains the word “slack” as part of its IP address/DNS name. For more information on manually adding resources into monitoring, see Adding Devices.

Assign Property to Slack Resource

The following custom property must be set on the Slack resource within LogicMonitor. For more information on setting properties, see Resource and Instance Properties.

Property

Value

slack.status Any value is acceptable; do not leave blank

​ ​Note: Because this is a service, some care should be taken to set this property at the resource level only. Although the addCategory_SlackService PropertySource should guard against site-wide application, it’s still a recommended best practice to avoid setting this property at the group or root level. ​​

LogicModules in Package

​ LogicMonitor’s package for Slack Status consists of the following LogicModules. For full coverage, please ensure that all of these LogicModules are imported into your LogicMonitor platform.
