SCOM & Slack integration

Tech JBL 40 Reputation points

I want to integrate slack and SCOM. I have a PowerShell script that will post notifications to slack. But I can't find a way to create a custom rule to generate an error (e.g. I want to create a rule that will trigger when any machine goes down or CPU utilization drops). When this rule is broken, my PowerShell script for slack notifications will be triggered. Is this possible in SCOM?

    You can refer to the following steps:

    1. Create a new command channel in SCOM
    2. Attach a script that will process the alert output (logic that transforms the data and sends it to Slack)
    3. Create subscriptions for monitors and rules to be delivered to deliver the command channel to the subscription


    If you have Orchestrator in your System Center infrastructure, you can trigger runbooks by SCOM alerts. It's a great way to make the process more manageable. You can invoke the script in the runbook.
