When builds fail, I’d like to notify specific slack users (in addition to the circleci message) that a build has failed.
I’m slightly in shock that this isn’t implemented. Isn’t the point of Slack notifications to alert the person who broke a build that they broke a build?
We definitely want to do this.
As I see it, it involves connecting a user’s build actor identity (e.g., github id) to a slack identity.
The first-class way to do this suggests we’ll need to provide oAuth with Slack (which doesn’t support OPENID) so that may take a bit longer than one would imagine.
We’re also considering somewhat more hacky ways to implement
No timeline set yet though.
