Walterbot

With the slack app you can easily setup personal notifications for your favorite apps, the included bot -walterbot- will keep you updated and allows you to take action directly from inside slack.

Here's an example notification:

FAQ

Can I get notifications in other channels (instead of a direct message)?

Currently Walter only communicates directly with you. Having Walter communicate in public channels is something we are looking at.

How can I contact you?

You can contact us on our public slack channel: slack.wercker.com or contact support via uservoice: https://wercker.uservoice.com/

 

Supported commands

The following commands are supported:

  1. /walter register links your Wercker account with the slack app
  2. /walter subscribe setup personal notifications for the apps that you want to keep posted on
  3. /walter unsubscribe remove notifications you no longer care about
  4. /walter unregister allows you to unlink your Wercker account (from the slack app)
  5. /walter help or /walter [command] help will give you hints about which commands and options there are and what they do

Register

/walter register [token]

Go to your profile https://app.wercker.com/profile/tokens and generate a new token. This token allows the slack app to verify who you are on slack and ensure you can also get notifications for private applications.

You'll be asked to confirm each deletion, so there's no chance of accidentally deleting a notification.

Unregister

/walter unregister

Allows you to unlink your Wercker account, as a consequence all subscriptions you've created will also be removed (since they won't work anyway)
