  6. From the drop-down menu, select chat:write.public. A pop-up window appears, confirming that chat:write will also be automatically added. Select Add Scopes. You can add other scopes if you'd like, but it's not necessary for integrating Application Security with Slack. Screenshot

Integrate with Application Security

  1. Navigate to your Application Security dashboard. In the left menu, select Integrations.
  2. Select Add Integration from the top-right corner.
  3. Select Slack from the pop-up window.
  4. In the Configure Slack Integration window, fill in the following fields:
    • API Key: Your OAuth Access Token that was copied above.
    • Hint: A hint you can use to help you remember what access token was used to integrate Application Security with Slack. Your Integration Key will be hidden once the integration is added for security reasons.
    • Channel Name: The Slack channel you'd like the alerts to be posted to. Do not include the # sign.
    • Minimum Reported Severity: The minimum severity of alerts that you'd like to be posted to your Slack channel. You can choose between high, medium, or low.

You've completed integrating Application Security with Slack! When a new alert is generated, it will appear in your designated Slack channel.
