Running ​​GitLab CI/CD pipelines in Slack made easy

Effortlessly run GitLab CI/CD pipelines in Slack with Actioner. No coding needed—initiate, monitor, and get real-time updates. Install the GitLab CI/CD app now!

Ever thought about running your GitLab CI/CD pipelines directly from Slack? No coding or complex configuration required. Discover how it works!

Typically, running GitLab CI/CD pipelines manually in Slack means creating a custom Slack app and using APIs to manage the pipelines, which involves significant effort in hosting and maintaining your code. Usually, the Slack command operates based on a single GitLab user.

With the ultimate GitLab Slack integration, Actioner simplifies this entire process. No need to build a custom Slack app or write any code. We've developed a solution that enables you to run GitLab CI/CD pipelines with our ready-to-use Run pipeline action within Slack!

Executing GitLab CI/CD Pipelines in Slack

In Slack, you can initiate a GitLab CI/CD Pipeline by typing /actioner and searching for Run pipeline action. Actioner will ask you to select a project and a branch. You can optionally enter variables as well.

If desired, you can immediately check your pipeline's status in GitLab though the View pipeline button in the notification.

What’s more, you will receive updates on your pipeline run in your DM’s and the channels you configured during setup.
