         slack_url            => 'YOUR_SLACK_URL',
         slack_token          => 'INCOMING_WEBHOOK_TOKEN',
         slack_channel        => '#puppet',
         slack_botname        => 'puppet',
         slack_iconurl        => '',
         slack_puppet_reports => 'store,http,slack',
         is_puppetmaster        => true,

    you might also want to set slack_puppet_dir => '/etc/puppetlabs/puppet' if you use puppet enterprise.

Class: slack

The slack module sets up the puppetmaster or puppetserver for slack integration.

Parameters within slack:


The base url to your slack page. Required. Example: ''


The secret webhook. Required.


The channel where puppet messages will be sent.
Default: '#puppet'


The name of the slack bot Default: 'puppet'


The icon to show next to the puppet message. Default: '',


Manages the puppet report in the puppet.conf. If left undef, this module will not modify the puppet.conf. Example: 'store,http,slack'


The default is 'true' which means slack will manage the installation for a puppetmaster. Set to 'false' to use the new PuppetServer.




The following operating systems were tested:

  • Centos 6.5
  • Ubuntu 14.04
