Authorize Connection Between Identity Enterprise and Slack

When the connection between Identity Enterprise and Slack is authorized, your users can start receiving Identity Enterprise notifications in their Slack Workspace > App > UID.

    • Hide sensitive information: When enabled, users’ Identity Enterprise email addresses will only be partially displayed.
    • User Mention Format: Decide to either display your users’ Slack display names or Identity Enterprise email addresses when they are mentioned in the Slack notifications sent by Identity Enterprise.
  5. Here are examples of username display formats.
    • Display Slack Display Name: @John.Smith has remotely unlocked the Main Door in New York.
    • Display Identity Enterprise Email Address: John.Smith (john.smith@ui.com) has remotely unlocked the Main Door in New York.
