Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need.
Compass currently supports Slack as a tool to:
Show rich component data when sending a component link over Slack
Integrate Compass with Slack
Before you begin
Ensure that you are an admin on:
the Slack organization that you want to connect with Compass
your Compass instance
You can connect only one Slack workspace per Compass instance. Additionally, if you log in to another Atlassian account in Slack, you’ll no longer be logged in for the original Atlassian account that you were logged into.
Perform the integration
In Compass, select Apps from the top navigation bar.
On the Slack tile, select Install. The app installs.
On the Slack tile, select Configure.
If you haven't already, authorize the app to access Compass on your behalf. Select Allow access and follow the on-screen instructions.
This step appears only once on your Compass instance for each app you install. So, if you've already authorized the app before, proceed to the next step.
Select Connect to Slack. You’ll be redirected to Slack to log in.
Log in to Slack.
Select Allow to grant the Compass app access to your Slack workspace.
Follow the login prompts sent in Slack after installation to authenticate your account with Atlassian.
Get rich component data when sending component links over Slack
When you share a link to a Compass component in Slack, the component’s details like its owner team, component type, lifecycle information, tier, last updated by, and its description are displayed.
