[Improvement] Updated Slack integration for granular permissions (Read more)
Month: September 2020
Slack Integration Update
Slack is requiring all Slack Apps to be updated for Granular Permissions. This update improves the security of our Slack integration by limiting the permissions. Status.io will only request permission to post messages to a single channel.
All Slack subscribers must resubscribe
An email will automatically be sent to all subscribers advising of this update with instructions to resubscribe. Status notifications will not be received in their Slack channel until they resubscribe.
Slack status notification messages will display the Status.io icon. If you had previously set up a custom icon, it will not be used. This is a limitation introduced by Slack’s API changes. We will be watching closely for future updates, as we would love to re-introduce this feature.
