Here's a video to get your started.
Step 1: To set up Slack, first go to your MalCare dashboard. On the top right corner, you will find the account drop-down. Click on it.
Step 2: In the drop-down menu, you will find an option called ‘Integration’. Clicking on that will take you to the third party services page, where you will find slack.
Step 3: Click on slack. It will take you to the page where you can connect to slack. To do this, click on ‘Add to slack’.
Step 4: Add to slack takes you to slack’s sign in page. Enter your workspace’s slack URL and click Continue to sign in. If you don’t have one, there is an option to create one on the same page.
Step 5: You will be directed to your group’s sign-in page. Enter your email address and password to sign in.
Step 6: Once you sign in, the next screen allows you to select one channel to broadcast the notification. Select one that is most relevant and then click on Authorize.
You are done! The last screen shows you a confirmation page that informs you of your successful slack integration and the channel that the notifications would be sent to.
Now that you have successfully integrated slack on to your MalCare dashboard, you must be wondering what kind of notifications you would be getting. Given below are the events that would trigger a notification to your slack:
1. Site Scan Finished
2. Site Auto-Restore Finished
3. User Account Cancelled
4. Staging Site Created
5. Site Cleanup Successful
6. Site Table Corrupted
7. HTTP Auth detected on the Website
8. Staging site expiring
9. Website monitoring - Website is reachable
10. Website monitoring - Website is unreachable
So every time one of the above-mentioned events happen, you would get a notification on your slack!
