  3. In the ADD DESTINATION dialog, select a destination type.

    The ADD DESTINATION dialog updates with basic fields for all destinations and unique fields for the destination type you selected.

  4. Specify basic destination fields.

    Field Required? Description

    The name of a destination cannot be changed after the ADD DESTINATION dialog is saved.

    Destination description No Text to describe the destination.
    Destination type Yes

    The type to create.

    Tags No A list of arbitrary terms to associate with the destination.

    Zenoss Cloud sends a test message to the new destination, but does not save it (next step).

When you get a Slack bot token for a destination, you also install the Zenoss Slack app if it is not already installed.


You may need administrative privileges to perform this procedure.

Follow these steps:

  2. Log in to your Slack workspace.

  3. Review the permissions that the Zenoss Slack app requires, and then click Allow or Cancel.

If you are unable to get a token, please contact Zenoss Support.
