Send notifications using Slack
You can notify your User Group members using Slack as one of the notification channels. To do this, add a Slack Incoming Webhook into your Harness User Groups' Notification Preferences.

Copy the Webhook.
Step 2: Add the Webhook to the User Group Notification Preferences
- In your Account/Organization/Project click Access Control.
- Click User Groups.

- Paste the Webhook into Slack Webhook URL or add it as an Encrypted Text in Harness and reference it here.
