StackState Self-hosted v5.0.x

This page describes StackState version 5.0.

Go to the documentation for the latest StackState release.


The Slack StackPack allows you to receive event notifications in Slack channels. The StackPack installs a number of event handler functions that can be used when adding an event handler to a view in StackState.

Slack is a StackState core integration.

  • Event handlers added to a StackState view run an event handler function in response to events that are generated in StackState.

  • A Slack event handler function sends an alert to the specified Slack Webhook URL with details of the generated event.

  • An alert appears in the Slack channel associated with the specified Slack Webhook.



Install the Slack StackPack from the StackState UI StackPacks > Integrations screen. You do not need to provide any parameters.


After the Slack StackPack has been installed, a Slack event handler function will be listed when you add an event handler to a view.

Note that you will need to create a Slack Webhook (slack.com).


When a new version of the Slack StackPack is available in your instance of StackState, you will be prompted to upgrade in the StackState UI on the page StackPacks > Integrations > Slack.

For an overview of recent StackPack updates, check the StackPack versions shipped with each StackState release.
