Introduction

You can now receive notifications from your server straight to Slack.

In order to set this up you need to create a new webhook in Slack which can be used by the Nimbus Hosting platform to send notifications straight into a Slack channel of your choice.

Slack have their own documentation of how to set set up web hooks which you can find here:

https://api.slack.com/messaging/webhooks
