Is there a way to include a link to a dashboard in Slack Notification Alert?

Explorer

Hello Fellow Splunkers,
I have an Alert set up which sends notification into a Slack Channel, I wanted to know if there is a way to include links to a dashboard within the Slack Notification Alert Content.

Thanks.

Would the alert point to many different dashboards, depending on the output? If they all point back to the same dashboard you can just use the dashboard link in plain text. Slack should auto format it as a link. The link will be something like https://splunk.mydomain.com/en-US/app/search/myDashboard

If you need different dashboards for different alert outcomes, you are probably going to need multiple alerts.

Alternatively, if it's different dashboards based on the results of the search then you could use sendresults https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1794/ (or it may make more sense to have multiple alerts).

Thanks for the response Richard. Each alert would point to the same dashboard but with different token inputs. I'll give it a shot.

I just tested this with some form.field inputs and slack did format the link. I was able to click on it, and get the populated dashboard.
https://splunk.myDomain.com/en-US/app/search/myDashboard?form.field1=id&form.field1=displayName

You can, of course, also do form.field1=$result.foo$ to populate the dashboard with results from the search.
