The Slack alert integration enables users to easily integrate alerts on log data with their Slack workspace. See documentation for more on the process on creating a view and attaching an alert.
After attaching an alert and selecting view-specific alerts- LogDNA provides you with several options for third-party integrations and one of these is Slack:
After clicking on Slack- a window pops up with options for test alerts, presence and absence alerting.
Test alerts allow the user to check whether the third party integration is working, presence alerts send alerts to the third party integration after a criteria is met (i.e. 5 or more matches within 30 seconds) and absence alerts sends an alert when there are fewer log lines than anticipated.
