I have installed the CC Hubot integration and have it sending messages to Slack (http://severalnines.com/blog/automate-your-database-ccbot-clustercontrol-hubot-integration). This works well.
The current implementation gives me a message like the following when a backup starts:
New job (22) has been scheduled on cluster 1: Starting backup job. (RUNNING3)
However there is no feedback on when it completes, even if it fails. I can take or leave the backup starting message, but what I'd really like to see is the backup complete message which would include the following information:
- Name of the cluster (not just the cluster number)
- If the backup was successful or not
- The duration of the backup
I believe the above should all be possible with the standard job information, but as an added bonus it would be nice to see the final backup size, however this is not as important.
I'd also like to be able to filter the notifications based on backup type. For example, show the result for a full backup regardless if it was successful or not, but only show a message for incremental backups if it failed.
I guess that this could be put more generally as 'finer control over Slack messaging'.
