Is there a good looking way to notify slack as a subscriber for private pages behind 2FA?
So far the only method I've found is to use email notifications, and they look AWFUL in slack.
I'm still working on trying to get RSS to work, but our page uses SAML with 2FA so that's a bit of a challenge.
The integration is for admins of the page (team members) so that doesn't work as the links go to the wrong place.
Has anyone found any alternatives?
Hi @Robert Valentine ,
There is an option to use Slack as a front-end consumer, like the email notifications and RSS feeds currently work. You do need to enable this on the page first! Once it's on, people viewing the page (past your 2FA/SAML auth-wall) can subscribe a Slack channel to notifications.
Ah yes - right you are. Apologies for my over-eagerness - although this might be worth having an internal discussion on if the page should continue to be behind an auth-wall. In the case that it does, one suggestion might be to use middleware like Zapier to parse the email notifications and then send them to Slack re-formatted.
In that case I'd probably set up something to catch the webhook and translate it for slack.
It's still not a good subscriber solution, as telling folks they need to set up their own middleman, or creating one that just happens to know how to direct things is not particularly awesome.
It does confirm that currently there doesn't seem to be a good solution at this time.

Understand that you are trying to integrate a Private Page with your Slack channel to receive the notifications.
May I confirm with you is the capability offered by the native Slack App is sufficient for this requirement?

Sorry, I didn't use the correct term.
I was referring to the native Slack App when I said, "The integration is for admins of the page"
The problem with this one is that our company primarily communicates through slack, so customers (subscribers) wont be able to use those notifications as they link to the backend.
If there were an option to toggle the type of notifications to front-end it might work, but it would still be more ideal if someone could self-subscribe.
Thank you for clarifying.
We're excited to announce the release of a long-requested feature on Statuspage. Now visitors to your status page can subscribe to get notified in Slack when you report an incident or maintenance. Th...
