Can I notify to Slack channel on deployment events in yaml-spec? Edited

Have been fiddling with yaml-spec deployments with some late success (that yaml-structure is a hump, you know).

Got email notifications working after some trial and error.

Is it possible to trigger Slack channel notification from yaml-specs too?

If so, what is the recipient type and how do we get the slack channel name and webhook token in there?

My google-fu got me some interesting links (some old, some rudimentary):

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bamboo-questions/Setup-notification-in-YML-bamboo-specs/qaq-p/731810

And the obvious links to reference docs etc, but no definitive answers.

My guess is that slack notifications is not implemented for yaml-spec yet, though...

This is what I've got now (works):

triggers: 
- build-success
notifications:
- events:
- deployment-finished
recipients:
- emails:
- m@j.com

Edit: speling

Hi @matgry

It is possible to do it through Java Specs. I did not find it in our docs for YAML and the Bamboo source code didn't seem to show that option either.

I've opened a feature request to address this:

The easy way to see how to configure this through Java specs is:

  1. Install the plugin Slack Notifications for Bamboo | Atlassian Marketplace
  2. Configure your deployment environment with the slack notification you need
  3. Still in the deployment environment configuration [...] (top right)  >> View project as Java Specs
  4. Copy the configuration

This is the part of the code showing the notification you need:

.notifications(new Notification()
.type(new AnyNotificationType(new AtlassianModule("bamboo.deployments:deploymentStartedFinished")))
.recipients(new AnyNotificationRecipient(new AtlassianModule("com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.bamboo-slack:recipient.slack"))
.recipientString("https://<YOUR_DOMAIN>.slack.com/services/new/incoming-webhook.|#<YOUR_CHANNEL>||"))));

I hope you can use Java Specs instead.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye on the feature request, and maybe look into Java specs as well.
