Slack integration for creating channels from issues/epics
Problem to solve
At GitLab we use dedicated slack channels for bigger issues/efforts in order to speed up internal communication around that item, however, this is a completely manual process.
A slack channel creation button is shown on issues/epics when using the Slack integration.
- Once clicked, the slack channel is automatically created including a link towards the issue/epic in the channel message.
- The integration has a configuration for prepending the channel name with for example
- Afterward the button links directly to the already created channel
- The button will only be visible for project members
