plexWatch - Slack Webhook integration

nateshawnateshaw Posts: 12Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Has anyone added capability to plexWatch for posting to a Slack channel through their webhook integration?

I love using plexWatch and thought it would be cool to have a slack channel dedicated to receiving the information. Then anyone with access to the channel can see activity on the Plex server.

    For anyone that is interested and has the know-how, here is the link to Slack's page which talks about how it works:

    @nateshaw Actually logged in to say, your edits worked great, only took a tiny bit of fiddling, and now have output into my slack team.

    THANK YOU.

    hey @elan , thanks for sharing the slack integration on github! I've got this working, but is it possible to control which Plex events trigger a slack payload?

    Would be cool if the Plex webhooks generated an added media hook too, instead of having to use zzanger's project above!

    Not at the moment, right now it's "all of them" and the recipient is expected to filter.

    It's the one everyone asks for :)

    For the webhooks in plex do you just have it pushed to the heroku app url?
