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 Settings > Integrations.
  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.
