Webhook integration


This topic explains how to use the Slack webhook integration to set up Slack Incoming Webhooks to receive any activities in LaunchDarkly. When something is changed (e.g. when a feature flag is updated, when a new team member is invited to LaunchDarkly, and more) we'll send an incoming webhook to Slack.

New Slack app is now available

LaunchDarkly has developed a new Slack app which is more powerful and easier to use than the Slack webhooks integration.

The content below describes the older webhook-based integration.

Creating a Slack incoming hook

First, create an incoming hook in Slack. To do this, head to the Incoming Webhooks page in Slack, select a channel, and click Add Incoming WebHooks integration.

Copy the Webhook URL, and in LaunchDarkly, navigate to the Integrations page, and click Add Integration in the chat integrations section.

Adding a policy filter

By default, room notifications set up without a policy filter will receive a notification for any change in LaunchDarkly (across any project, environment, goal, feature flag, etc.). You can optionally specify a policy (using the same syntax as our custom roles feature to filter the events sent to your room.

For example, if you only want to receive an event when a change is made to one of your production feature flags, you can add the following policy to your room notification:

  "effect": "allow",
  "resources": [
  "actions": [

Disabling a Slack incoming webhook

You can temporarily disable a Slack incoming webhook by hitting the On/Off switch on the Integrations page.
