It is possible to get Slack notifications from BitBar Testing to existing Slack team channels.

Set up Slack

To get a Slack notification out of your test runs in BitBar Testing, you first need to allow incoming WebHooks for your team’s Slack. Open a web browser and go to https://<team>.slack.com/apps and search for webhooks.
