Integrate Soda with Slack

Last modified on 11-Jun-24

As an Admin on your Soda Cloud account, integrate your Slack workspace in your Soda Cloud account so that Soda Cloud can interact with individuals and channels in the workspace. Use the Slack integration to:

  • send notifications to Slack when a check result triggers an alert
  • create a private channel whenever you open new incident to investigate a failed check result
  • track Soda Discussions wherein your fellow Soda users collaborate on data quality checks
  1. In Soda Cloud, navigate to your avatar > Organization Settings, then navigate to the Integrations tab and click the + icon to add a new integration.
  2. Follow the guided steps to authorize Soda Cloud to connect to your Slack workspace. If necessary, contact your organization’s Slack Administrator to approve the integration with Soda Cloud.
    • Configuration tab: select the public channels to which Soda can post messages; Soda cannot post to private channels.
    • Scope tab: select the Soda features (alert notifications and/or incidents) which can access the Slack integration.

Integration for Soda Cloud alert notifications

You can use this integration to enable Soda Cloud to send alert notifications to a Slack channel to notify your team of warn and fail check results.

With such an integration, Soda Cloud enables users to select a Slack channel as the destination for an alert notification of an individual check or checks that form a part of an agreement, or multiple checks.

To send notifications that apply to multiple checks, see Set notification rules.

Integration for Soda Cloud incidents

You can use this integration to notify your team when a new incident has been created in Soda Cloud. With such an integration, Soda Cloud displays an external link to an incident-specific Slack channel in the Incident Details.

Set a default Slack channel for notifications
