SlackSend Channel Message

Make sure the whole team is aware when Amazon CloudWatch alarms are triggered. Use this Zap to notify a Slack channel, instead of keeping email addresses up to date in CloudWatch.

How It Works

  1. An Amazon CloudWatch alarm changes state
  2. Zapier posts a message to Slack, notifying the whole team
