Sending Events to Slack

Send notifications from your Paragon project into Slack.
You can configure a Webhook Destination with a preconfigured payload to send messages into Slack when events, like workflow failures, occur in your Paragon project.
Webhook Destinations are available for Paragon customers on Pro and Enterprise plans. To learn more, contact your Customer Success Manager or [email protected].
