slack

Send the experiment report in a message to a Slack channel using a incoming webhook.

Usage Example

iter8 launch \
--set "tasks={http,assess,slack}" \
--set http.url=http://127.0.0.1/get \
--set assess.SLOs.upper.http/latency-mean=50 \
--set assess.SLOs.upper.http/error-count=0 \
--set slack.url=<Slack webhook> \
--set slack.method=POST \
--set runner=job

See here for a more in-depth tutorial.

Parameters

Name Type Required Default value Description
url string Yes N/A URL to the Slack webhook
payloadTemplateURL string No https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iter8-tools/iter8/v0.11.10/charts/iter8/templates/_payload-slack.tpl URL to a payload template
softFailure bool No true Indicates the task and experiment should not fail if the task cannot successfully send the request
if string No N/A An if condition that can be control when the task is run in a multi-looped experiment. To learn more, see here.

Default payload

The payload will determine what will be contained in the Slack message. The default payload templae of the slack task is to send the experiment report in text form.

However, if you would like to use a different payload template, simply set a payloadTemplateURL and Iter8 will not use the default.

if parameter

The if parameter is used to control when the task is run in a multi-looped experiment. For example, if you would like for the slack task to run only at the 10th loop instead of every loop, you can do the following:

  iter8 launch \
  --set "tasks={http,assess,slack}" \
  --set http.url=http://127.0.0.1/get \
  --set assess.SLOs.upper.http/latency-mean=50 \
  --set assess.SLOs.upper.http/error-count=0 \
  --set slack.url=<Slack webhook> \
  --set slack.method=POST \
+ --set github.if="Result.NumLoops == 10"
  --set runner=job

You may use any field in the Result object for your logic.
