This tutorial, I will be sharing how to integrate Monika with Slack. You can integrate Monika with Slack using Incoming Webhook so that when there is a Monika incidents or recoveries alert, your team will be notified via existing Slack channels.
First things first, you need to have a Slack workspace. Create your user account on their website and follow their steps to create a new workspace. Now that we have our workspace ready, head to the Browse Slack and select Apps. Search for an app called Incoming Webhooks.
Click Add and you will be redirected to the setup page. Click the Add to Slack button. You will be asked which channels you want to connect with Monika. As an example, I used the #monika-notification channel. After you have selected your channel, click Add Incoming Webhooks Integration button. You should see that your Webhook URL is ready to use.

monika -c monika.yml
Congratulations! Now that you have successfully integrated Monika with Slack, you will be notified if your website is slow or down!
