APIs are getting more and more consumed by organisations and we want to encourage you to do the same with Aras. Here is a quick tutorial on how to publish Aras events to Slack like a document or a part release, or a Problem request created which you would like your support team to see on their Slack Channel.
Create a Slack Team
If you haven't done it before Create your Slack team
Configure the web-hook
Then, Create a web-hook which will create a dedicated Rest-Point you can reach from Aras.
You can find all the information about configuring a web hook on the following link : https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks
The Aras Method !
Now comes the Aras part. Here is the method that I wrote for a document release. I attached it on the lifecycle transition server event to the release state. If you want to apply it on a different event, then just create a method that is attached to a different event and change the comment sent to slack. Or, you could create a generic method which takes the Item ID and ItemType and maybe some more info to make it easier to reproduce without copying the whole Rest Call everytime.
This is what I get the in my slack team after a few document releases.
