Get technical notifications#

To stay up to date with the latest news about the services in a project, you can set up notifications for technical contacts for the project. If you don’t add a technical email for a project, email notifications will still be sent to users with admin and operator roles.

Notifications include information about plan sizes, performance, outages and scheduled maintenance. High priority notifications (for example, a plan running out of space) are also sent to project admin users.

Set up email notifications#

  1. In the project, click Settings.

  2. In the Technical Emails section, add the email addresses.

  3. Click Save changes.

Set up Slack notifications#

To get notifications in Slack, you can add a Slack channel’s or DM email address to the technical contacts for an Aiven project:

  1. In Slack, create an email address for a channel or DM.


    If you don’t see the email integrations option, ask the owner or admin of the workspace or organization to allow incoming emails.

  2. In the Aiven Console, go to the project that you want to get notifications for.

  3. Click Settings.

  4. In the Technical Emails section, add the email address that you created for the Slack channel or DM.

  5. Click Save changes.

Alternatively, you can set up a Slackbot forwarding address and use that to automatically forward Aiven’s email notifications from your email client.
