Information

In the Digiz APP config you will be able to create an optional name for your Slack channel, and add the webhook address to the channel.

You need to create a Webhook for each channel you want to push product / service data to. To do this, follow the instructions below.

1. Create a Slack app (if you do not already have one)
You will not get far without doing this step, but fortunately it is very simple, we even have a nice button for you to click on:

Choose a name, choose a workspace to connect your app to then click Create app. If you have already created one, you can also use it.

2. Enable incoming Webhooks
Once created, you will be redirected to the settings page for your new app (if you do) using an existing app, just load the settings via your app management dashboard ).

From here, select the Inbound webhooks feature and click Enable Inbound Webhooks to turn it on.

3. Create an incoming Webhook
Now that the incoming webhookers are enabled, the settings page should be updated and some additional options displayed. One of these options will be a really useful button marked Add new webhook to the workspace and you should click on it.

What this button does is trigger a shortcut version of the installation flow for Slack apps, a which is completely standalone so you do not need to build any code to generate an incoming webhook URL.

Go ahead and select a channel that the app will add and then click to approve your app.

You will be sent back to your app settings, and you should now see this post under Webhook URLs for Your Workspace , with a Webhook URL that looks like this:

https://hooks.slack.com/services/T00000000/B00000000/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
This URL is your shiny new incoming webhook, one that is specific to a single user and a single channel.

Keep it secret, keep it safe. Your webhook URL contains a secret. Do not share it online, nor through public version control repositories. Slack actively seeks out and recalls leaked secrets.
