Opal + Slack

Product Overview

Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate.

Integration Overview

Opal's integration with Slack creates a frictionless access management workflow that brings essential information about access requests to the appropriate resource owners and managers. Not only does it allow owners to approve or deny the request within Slack itself, the notification also updates in real time to show outstanding requests and pending next steps. By bringing access requests right to your manager's fingertips, Opal helps you maintain security standards, meet compliance requirements, and greatly reduce inefficiencies within your team.

Use cases

  • Admins can set up Slack alerts to ensure that all access events (even if they occur outside of Opal) will be dumped into a Slack channel
