Slack Configuration

To send alert messages to Slack channels and users, you need to create a Slack App/Bot and obtain the necessary API token. Follow these steps:

Creating a Slack App/Bot

  1. Create a Slack App by visiting 
  2. After creating the app, add it to your workspace.
  3. Generate a Bot user token by logging into the created app and navigating to the Features -> OAuth & Permissions section.
  4. Add the following scopes to the token: chat:write, chat:write.public.
  5. Copy the generated token; you will need it to configure in vuSmartMap’s settings.

Form an Alert Message

This will work similarly to the MS Teams Alert Message creation.

💡Note: Slack Supports Markdown Syntax, which can be used to format messages.
