Slack

Notify your team on Slack when an environment variable is changed.

Connecting Dotenv to Slack takes just a couple clicks, instantly notifying your team of any secret changes.

Instructions

Step1

Navigate to the add-ons tab. Click Slack. Then click Connect to Slack and follow the prompts.

Step2

You will be redirected to Slack’s website. Select your organization (top right) and then click Allow. This grants Dotenv access to post messages in the Slack channel of your choosing.

That completes the steps to authorize Dotenv with Slack.

Step3

The last step is to select a channel. Enter your Channel ID and then click Finish Configuration.

(Find the Channel ID by clicking the channel name and scrolling to the bottom of the pop up modal.)

You should receive a notification in your Slack that Dotenv is configured 🎉.

ProTip: If you do not receive the notification that Slack is configured correctly, you might need to additionally add the Dotenv app to your Slack. Type /add app in your Slack channel and then search for Dotenv and add it.

That’s it!
