Slack Integration

Overview

The Slack Integration allows you to receive notifications on Slack about your Shogun Frontend store.

This feature will be initially coupled with our GitHub Integration, by providing notifications of the changes being pushed to the repository. We plan to expand this feature to include other non-GitHub focused notifications.

Disconnecting Slack

  1. Under Settings, click on the Disconnect Slack button from the Slack tab.

What Happens When I Need to Request Permission?

Some workspaces restrict the permissions to install apps. In this case you will see a screen to request approval to the admins of the workspace.

Once the app is approved by your workspace administrator, you will receive a notification from Slackbot with a link to execute the installation through the Slack App Directory. However, the installation through the App Directory will not work because that link is missing some data that we need to introduce, this is expected behavior.

What you need to do at this point, is to return to Shogun Frontend, and click the Connect button under Settings, so all the required data can be available. Since the app is now approved in the workspace, the installation will be completed normally.
