Slack Connector for Venafi
Typically, software engineers and IT admins work in several tools at any one time, including Slack, which is always open as the primary communication and engagement platform. Context switching is incredibly costly as it drops productivity.
Today, if an action is required for any certificate, an email is generated and sent to the appropriate Venafi admin to take the appropriate action. To reduce context switching, limit missed emails, and improve overall efficiency, Venafi customers would benefit from a notification system that will allow team members to be alerted about critical actions quickly, and in the tools that are already being used.
As part of the Development Fund, Cprime intends to provide a streamlined notification flow by integrating Venafi with Slack via a chatbot. Then Venafi users will no longer need to switch amongst different environments for a complete machine identity lifecycle. They can perform basic and common machine identity management within Slack using slash commands (/create, /renew, /revoke, etc.).
