Slack Enterprise Grid Support
Note: If you've already installed the FireHydrant integration into a Slack workspace and would love to move it to enterprise grid, make sure you uninstall the Integration before continuing.
FireHydrant works great with Slack Enterprise Grid, and in this guide we'll show you how you can add the FireHydrant bot to multiple Slack workspaces to leverage creating incidents across a broader set of your organization.
If you are a Slack administrator with access to approve Slack apps for the entire organization, then this guide is for you!
First, make sure you're logged in to FireHydrant and click this link to install us to Slack. From there, make sure you select an Organization (not an individual workspace!) from the dropdown in the top right.
This will install FireHydrant as an Org-level integration into the selected Slack organization.
Once FireHydrant has been added to an organization, you must add the integration to the workspaces you'd like to have access to the integration. This enables the members of that workspace to run commands such as
/fh new to declare incidents.
Now for the fun part. When FireHydrant creates channels for incidents, posts into your
#incidents channel, etc, we need to know which Slack workspace we should be doing that in!
- Visit the Integrations page in your FireHydrant account (it's under organization, or if you're using our new UI, the Settings tab)
- Click "Installed" integrations
- Click the edit icon for Slack
- Select which workspace we should use
- Click save!
Note: Workspaces may take a few minutes to sync (we've configured it to be about every 5 minutes), so grab a coffee, read Hacker News for a few, and smash refresh on this page.
If you've added FireHydrant to 5 workspaces or 50, you can now run the same command from any of them and declare a new incident with
And that's it! You're now prepared to declare and management incidents in your Slack Enterprise Grid organization. Now, brush up on our vast amount of Slack commands to get the most value out of the Slack integration.
