You can add a Slack plug-in to forward alerts and configure multiple notification rules with different slack channels. The Slack plug-in allows you to receive pre-formatted alert details with alert fields and helps you run vRealize Operations Cloud using alert links to troubleshoot further.



  1. From the left menu, click Configure > Alerts, and then in the right pane, click Outbound Settings.
  2. Click Add and from the Plugin Type drop-down menu, select Slack Plugin.
    The dialog box expands to include your plug-in instance settings.
  3. Enter an Instance Name.
  4. Enter a value for the Connection Count.
    The connection count represents the maximum number of open connections allowed per node in vRealize Operations Cloud.
  5. To verify the specified paths, credentials, and permissions, click Test.
  6. Click Save.


This instance of the Slack plugin is configured and running.

What to do next

When the plugin is added, configure notifications for different slack channels.
