Slack Integration
Connect the DoiT CMP to your Slack workspace to help share reports, budgets, anomalies or almost anything else with your colleagues faster.
The DoiT CMP Slack application helps you share rich previews of your Cloud Analytics Reports and Budgets in your Slack workspace when you paste any CMP link. This makes it easy for anyone in your Slack workspace to learn from your CMP analyses, or to glean insights without needing to open the CMP itself.
Only Slack Workspace Admins can install Slack applications.

Enable the Integration

To enable the integration, make sure you're logged in to both the CMP and Slack. Then, in the CMP:
    1.
    Click on the Settings icon in your lefthand navigation panel
    2.
    Switch to the Slack tab
    3.
    Click "Add to Slack"
Or just click this link to add the DoiT CMP Slack app to your workspace.

Finally, click "Allow" to give the DoiT CMP Slack app permission to access your Slack workspace.

At this point, DoiT CMP is a part of your Slack workspace, and any CMP Report or Budget links you send in Slack will unfurl with metadata, and if applicable a chart preview.
Once at least one member of your CMP organization has set up the Slack integration for their account, any other members of the Slack workspace will see a prompt the next time they paste a CMP link. The prompt will ask them to connect their own CMP account to Slack as well. If they choose to do so, Slack will guide them through the authentication flow you see above. Once they have successfully connected CMP to Slack, any further links they paste in Slack will unfurl.

Using the Integration

Once you've set up the integration, CMP links pasted in Slack will unfurl. Most links will provide some basic link metadata, and links to Reports and Budgets will include a chart preview.
For example:

Permissions

Only Slack Workspace Admins can install Slack applications. If you aren't an Admin for your Slack Workspace, forward this article to an Admin or guide them to add the DoiT Slack app via the DoiT CMP.
After the CMP is connected to Slack, any Slack user who posts a CMP link will be prompted to connect their own account in order to unfurl report previews. By performing this integration at the user level, it ensures that only reports the user has access to will unfurl in Slack.

Privacy

The CMP Slack app adheres to DoiT International overall privacy policy.
