Elasticsearch watcher - x-pack - markdown in slack notification

(Brijesh Amin) #1

I am trying to get make user and channels links to work in slack notifications on elasticsearch/x-pack. I have tried using "markdwn": true and ""

  "actions": {
    "notify-slack": {
      "slack": {
        "message": {
          "mrkdwn": true,
          "to": "@brijesh",
          "text": "<!U0FMK07QC|brijesh> errors on test module",
          "dynamic_attachments": {
            "list_path": "ctx.payload.hits.hits",
            "attachment_template": {
              "title": "Error on {{_source.environment}} v{{_source.version}}",
              "text": "{{_source.message}}"

I noticed such implementation being discussed here,

I wonder is this feature still not available in x-pack? Any workaround to make this work?

What I want to achieve is to be able to link users and channels mentioned in slack message to be linked and not just display as normal text.

It is not yet available. Do you need the mrkdwn: true field or would the mrkdwn_in field be sufficient for your usecase as well? Just to make sure this works when expected, when taking a stab at it.

happy to get any feedback!

Hi Spinscale,

I think mrkdwn_in should do the job for now. However, having both of them would be really useful.
