Slack integration

You can receive a message in your Slack channel when your cronjobs fail or succeed.

To set up integration from FastCron to your Slack channel, follow the instructions below:

Create an incoming webhook at Slack

  • Follow this link to create a Slack app with the name FastCron.
  • Enable incoming webhooks on the settings page for your new app. Select Incoming Webhooks, and toggle Activate Incoming Webhooks to on.
  • Click Add new webhook.

Now you’ll get an incoming webhook URL that allows FastCron to send messages to your channel.

The URL looks like this

https://hooks.slack.com/services/T00000000/B00000000/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Add it to your account Channels

  • Click the tab Channels on your account dashboard.
  • Click the Slack button.
  • Paste the webhook URL, then Save.

Enable notifications for your cronjobs

FastCron enables notifications for your cronjobs by default.

To check it, edit cronjobs, at the section Notifications, ensure the Notify me: when cronjob fails, and when cronjob succeeds after failed are checked.

FastCron will send you a message when a cronjob in your account fails, and when it succeeds again.
