Cortex XDR Alerts - Slack Integration

Is there any way to include the hostname for alerts received in Slack? They are very valuable to receive on the phone late at night, but would be even better if we had a bit more information: hostname, domain, something that indicates this is a test box... 🙂

Any takers? Is there something we need to tweak, or is this a feature request?

Hi @CChampagne1,


I reached out to one of our Cortex XDR Product Managers on this to verify.  If the ability to include the hostname is a not available via configuration, I will submit a feature request.  I will keep you posted.
