How to Use
This brick allows you to send a Slack message from PixieBrix.
👉 You need to set-up a slack webhook url to use this brick
Different from the basic Slack message, this advanced message brick uses the
attachments field instead of a text field, which can contain any number of attachments. Each of these attachments has a text field for the main text, a fallback field to display when the whole attachment isn’t displayed (such as in notifications), a color field, a pretext field for text to put before the attachment, and any number of table entries which have title and value fields.
To change the appearance of the account sending the message, use the
botName field to set the name and the
iconEmoji field to set the icon to an emoji on slack.
The target channel (or user) is set through the
channel field, including the # before the channel name or the @ before the username.
If you want to format URLs to appear in slack better use this format:
- You want to send information from PixieBrix to a user or a channel on Slack through a webhook
||#channel, or @username, or leave blank to use the default|
||If channel names and usernames should be turned into links/pings|
||Unfurl links to primarily text-based content|
|No outputs for this brick defined.|
