With a Slack problem-notification integration, your teams will always be aware of potential risks within applications, services, and infrastructure. Your teams can also use a Dynatrace-integrated Slack channel to discuss incidents, evaluate solutions, and link to similar problems.

Before you begin

To set up a Slack problem-notification integration, generate the Slack Incoming Webhook and save the Webhook URL in Dynatrace.
