Receive Alerts from AppSignal in Your Favourite Chat Tools
Starting today, you can receive notifications from AppSignal in your Discord channels. With AppSignal, you get endless insights with just a few minutes of work. We already have a whole list of out-of-the-box integrations besides Slack and Discord.
AppSignal was built with developers in mind and that is why it also allows you to customize it and build upon it with your solutions. You can use webhooks as the ultimate free form to get alerted on any URL you want.
No More Slack Workarounds
Previously, devs used to take the way the Slack integration formatted the alerts and used that for different clients like Discord. They liked the formatting of the notifications to the Slack integration and Discord could execute Slack compatible webhooks. Since Slack changed their third party apps to force oAuth that no longer worked though.
Discord is Now Supported Out of the Box
Today we’ve shipped real Discord support. The integration works out of the box, here’s how to set it up:
To create a webhook, click the Settings cog for the desired channel and navigate to the “webhooks” section of the settings page.
Click “Create webhook” to add a new webhook. You can use the following icon: AppSignal logo (right-click and save-as).
Copy the webhook URL and save the integration.
On AppSignal navigate to the “integrations” page (or click this link)..
Select the “Discord” integration from the “Add integration” dropdown and fill out the form.
Our Discord integration relies on the
slack compatible webhook endpoint on Discord, for the webhook, paste the webhook from the Discord integration screen and append
/slack to the URL.
Save the integration and when successfully saved, click the “test hook” button to verify the integration is working.
