(light music)…- [Instructor] The Slack integration for Splunk…is surprisingly simple to configure.…Splunk and Slack interact via a simple webhook.…First you'll need to set up a free Slack instance.…You can use an existing Slack instance if you have one,…but I'd recommend against that…if you're using it for actual work.…It's not a good idea to experiment…with real systems while you're learning.…I won't go through the Slack setup,…but it's really easy.…Just go to slack.com and follow the instructions.…

While that's going let's go over to our Slack instance,…and I'm gonna go down here where it says apps…and click the plus.…And I'll search for webhook.…And i'l click this, Incoming WebHooks.…
