Airplane supports deeply integrating with Slack to receive notifications, approve requests, execute tasks, and more.
To enable the integration, a team admin can visit their team settings and click the Add to Slack button:
Note that some features may require the user to create an Airplane account first.
When Slack is configured, users will receive notifications when various events occur:
When a task is requested, all reviewers will receive a notification. Users will get a DM from Airplane, and groups will receive a message in their channel (if configured).
When a request is rejected or approved, the requester and reviewers are notified.
When a run succeeds, fails, or is cancelled, the executer and requester (if any) are notified.
Request messages in Slack allow users to approve/reject them directly from Slack:
Users who do not have permissions to approve/reject will receive an error if they click the button.
Using the Airplane app shortcut, users can execute tasks directly from Airplane.
Click the lightning-bolt in Slack or type
