Chat groups

Slack is a common way to communicate with other Splunk users outside of user groups, the annual conference (.conf), or other Splunk and industry events. This form of chat enables anyone to communicate with the greater Splunk Community—customers, partners, and Splunkers—worldwide.

Use Slack to ask for help with issues, learn from other users in real time, and to network outside of in-person events. Experience Splunk Community culture and discover what makes us unique!

Join us on Slack

Anyone can submit a request to join the team called splunk-usergroups on Slack. Go to splk.it/slack. There are over 100 channels in the splunk-usergroups that you can participate in. There are channels for specific Splunk products and apps, specific industries or issues, specific cities or regions, and a few channels just for fun.

For a list of helpful channels, you can enter !channels or !channels-advanced in slack for a current list.

For example:

firebus [11:22 AM]
!channels

slackbot [11:22 AM]
#n00bs • #alerting • #architecture • #bestpractices • #certifications • #dashboards • #getting-data-in • #search-help • #sh-clustering • #indexer-clustering

You can also ask for direction in #_where_do_i_ask

The Splunk Community team approves requests to join the Slack team for Splunk. This helps us to block recruiters and sales people so that they don't disrupt the community vibe. We want to ensure that you are connecting with other Splunk users to learn and share experiences.
