Spherical integrates nicely with Slack using AWS, and can stream alerts directly to a channel of your choice. The following steps need to happen before starting a Spherical instance.
To start test driving Spherical with Slack, go onto your Slack dashboard here and create a new Slack App. This app will be configured to interact with a Spherical instance.
Once you have created the app, go on to the Incoming Webhooks link on your sidebar and activate incoming web-hooks.
Once activated, click ‘Add New Webhook to workspace’, and copy the resultant web-hook URL.
Once you have the web-hook to your Slack app, launch the Spherical stack on AWS using the CloudFormation button.
Add the above web-hook url to the SlackWebhook parameter.
