Slack

You will need to configure an incoming webhook in slack. The procedure can be found in their documentation.

For this example we will be assuming that slack:

  • Gave you this URL during the webhook creation https://hooks.slack.com/services/T00000000/B00000000/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX,
  • The user that created the webhook is named Demo,
  • Has an #octoperf channel and Demo can post into it.

In OctoPerf it would look like this:
