Slack (R6) – iceScrum

Obsolete iceScrum documention (R6#14+) This documentation applies only to old iceScrum R6. For new iceScrum v7, click here.

This document will guide you in order to integrate your project with Slack online service. Slack is a tool that helps teams to communicate and share information through “IRC like channels”. With this integration, you will be able to push data from iceScrum to your Slack channel.

Prior to be able to add Slack on your project, you need to activate the Slack integration at server level.
To do that you have to be connected as an admin, then go to settings, search for the “Team Communication” box, click to enable Slack integration and click on update to confirm. (Or ask your iceScrum administrator to do so)

In your admin settings pannel
