Slack webhook

This guide describes how to integrate your Zabbix 6.2 and higher installation with Slack using the Zabbix webhook feature. This guide will provide instructions on setting up a media type, a user and an action in Zabbix.

Setting up a Slack bot

1. On the page Your Apps press Create an App, select From scratch and specify its name and workspace.

2. In the Add features and functionality section, select Bots and press Review Scopes to Add.

3. In the Scopes section, find Bot Token Scopes, press Add an OAuth Scope and add chat:write, im:write and groups:write scopes.

4. In the Settings section on the left side of the page press Install App and then Install to Workspace.

5. Press Allow and copy Bot User OAuth Access Token, which will be used to set up webhook.

Zabbix Webhook configuration

Create a global macro

1. Before setting up the Webhook, you need to setup the global macro {$ZABBIX.URL}, which must contain the URL to the Zabbix frontend.

2. In the Administration > Media types section, import the media_slack.yaml

3. Open the added Slack media type and set bot_token to the previously created token.

  • You can also choose between two notification modes:
    • alarm (default)
      • Update messages will be attached as replies to Slack message thread
      • Recovery message from Zabbix will update initial message
    • event
      • Recovery and update messages from Zabbix will be posted as new messages

4. Click the Update button to save the Webhook settings.

5. To receive notifications in Slack, you need to create a Zabbix user and add Media with the Slack type.

The Send to field can contain several variants of values:

  • Channel name in #channel_name format
  • User name in @slack_user format for direct messages
  • Identifier (for example: GQMNQ5G5R)

6. You must add your bot to the target channel
