Integrating With Slack

Overview

Slack integration enables you to view security-related notifications in your team's native environment for day-to-day communications. Furthermore, you can assign specific notification types (e.g. whenever a developer ignores a security finding) to channels in your Slack workspace.

Steps for integrating with Slack

To integrate with a Slack workspace—

  1. From the Integrations page, locate the Slack tile and select Connect. Your browser navigates to the Slack permissions page.
  2. If you have multiple Slack workspaces, select the one you intend to integrate with from the dropdown in the top right corner of the page.
  3. From the dropdown at the bottom of the page, select a channel for the Jit Bot to post on.
  4. Select Allow. Your browser navigates back to the Jit platform.

Success!

Successful integration is indicated by a green check mark on the Slack tile. A welcome message from the Jit Bot displays in the Slack channel you previously selected.

Configuring Slack channels

Jit enables you to assign channels in your Slack workspace for specific notification types. Use this option to stay organized and eliminate unnecessary noise. Jit supports assigning each of the following notification types to a channel:

  • Ignored findings: This channel displays a notification for each finding ignored in Github.
  • Deployment on staging with findings: (Coming soon!)
  • Findings on saved views: Any new security finding that displays in a custom view defined in the Backlog page displays on this channel. For further information on custom views, see Backlog.
  • New action created: This channel displays a notification for every Action created in the Actions page.

To configure Slack channels—

  1. From the Integrations page, locate the Slack tile and select Configure.
  2. Use the dropdowns located in the Slack Notification Channels section of the dialog to make your selections.
  3. Select Done.

Configuring users for action sharing

Jit enables you to alert other users to newly created Actions via a notification in Slack. To ensure that Jit sends the notification to the correct user, you may need to manually match Jit users with their identities in Slack. See below for instructions.

To manually configure Slack users—

  1. From the Integrations page, locate the Slack tile and select Configure.
  2. Use the dropdowns located in the Configure Users for Sharing Actions section to match Jit users with their identities in Slack.
  3. Select Done.

Disconnecting from Slack

To disconnect from Slack—

  1. Navigate to the Integrations page, locate the Slack tile, and select Disconnect. The disconnect dialog opens.
  2. Select Disconnect to confirm the disconnection of Slack integration.
