Basic Form

Learn how to build a form to send a message to your Slack workspace from Qlik.

Create form

  • Go to your Forms Manager

  • In the top menu click on "New Form"

Form Settings

Slack uses CORS so you will need to use LLodi Agent to make the request.

  • Provide a name and description to your Form. You can also add some tags to facilitate its management.

  • In advanced options choose HTTP method 'POST' and add the header 'Content-Type' 'application/json'.

  • Add as Form URL the Slack Webhook using LLodi Agent as a Proxy. It will look something like this:

    {your agent URL}/proxy?https://hooks.slack.com/services/T00000000/B00000000/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Fill all the fields and click on create form.
