Integrate Slack with Access Requests

This process requires a user account that has admin permissions for both Access Requests and Slack Workspace Administrator permissions for a Slack organization.

Before you begin

Start this task

  1. In the Access Requests Console, go to SettingsIntegrations.
  2. Under Slack, click Connect.
  3. Click Add to Slack.

  4. From the Slack authorization window, click Authorize. See Okta Privacy policy.

Slack adds the Access Requests app to a workspace within your organization. You can select which workspace to add the app to, if your Slack plan allows.

Okta recommends that you add the Okta bot in a shared channel so users can submit requests from Slack. See Submit requests from Slack.

After users interact with the Okta bot or Access Requests app once, they automatically receive a notification when action is assigned to them or they're mentioned on a request.
