Service hook

I added a service hook ( url points to a slack hook). However there are no messages sent on build (or deploy). The slack hook works fine for a request sent through fiddler. Is there anything else that needs to be done to enable the service hook?

    Hi Vishal,

    I don't think the Slack API supports AppHarbor's service hook payload "out of the box", so that's probably it - I think you'd have to convert the format to match Slack's (in particular, have a "Text" property with the message you want to post).

    Note that service hooks are only invoked after a build has been processed. Here's a small example of code that post annotations to Librato upon worker startup and shutdown -- should be straightforward to adapt this to Slack's incoming webhook API.
