Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams.
Slack is a popular chat service used by large companies and small projects alike. It makes it easy to keep up-to-date with what's going on in your organization from any computer or mobile device.
Review Board can talk to Slack, notifying any given Slack channel when there are new review requests or updates to review, or new discussions on a review request that you might want to pay attention to.
Review Board 3.0+
Review Board 3.0 and higher include Slack built-in. You can make as many configurations as you like, controlling which review requests can be posted for which teams to which channels. See the documentation on getting set up.
Review Board 2.0/2.5
Older releases of Review Board can make use of the rbslack extension to integrate with Slack. This extension allows you to post all review requests and discussions to a designated Slack channel, but is more limited than what's provided in Review Board 3.0.
To get started, install the extension:
$ pip install rbslack
You can then enable the extension and follow the instructions for configuring it to talk to a Slack channel.
