Notify slack users

slack
notifications

#1

When builds fail, I’d like to notify specific slack users (in addition to the circleci message) that a build has failed.


#2

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?


#3

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 :slight_smile:

No timeline set yet though.
