Requires IS 5.4+ (The WebService API element must support custom headers)
This script lets you pragmatically create and post messages into a specified Slack channel within your organization. You can also leverage script inputs to fill in fields (although be careful to avoid abuse/accidental spam.)
Post markdown (bold, italic, strikethrough, links, etc.) for beautiful messages
Use your Slack Apps icon and name, or override it for individual submissions
Include a button that opens a website in your Slack message
Support for Emojis (critical feature in my opinion)
Use this in Mergecomm to send automated notifications (customized to its purpose, like server downs with :bomb: or 100 QA score :hearts:
You can also use it to integrate critical scripting actions to Slack (like supervisor escalations, client-specific workflow notifications, and anything else you can think of.)
The integration requires you to create a Slack App, give it permissions for chat:write, chat:write:public, and chat:write:customize in order to support all features of the integration.
Once your Slack app is created, deploy it in your organizations workspace and obtain the Bot OAuth API token (with above permissions) to use in the script.
Instructions and information built into script through Comments script element, in addition to an included PDF.
