GitHub PR notifications in Slack

Automatically create ephemeral Slack channels dedicated to open GitHub pull requests.

How it works:

Actioner creates ephemeral Slack channels for each GitHub PR review. The channel name contains the name of the PR and the name of its repository. Any stakeholders, assignees, and reviewers get invited to this dedicated channel. 

What they will see in the PR channel is;

  • PR details as soon as it is opened. 
  • Comments in GitHub as notifications.
  • Check suit results, commits, and deploys.

When the PR is closed, the ephemeral Slack channel gets archived. Having temp channels for PR reviews work as a productivity hack for development teams. Whenever a channel is archived, engineers get a sense of accomplishment by completing the review faster.

How to get GitHub notifications on Slack:

To begin with the PR review in Slack with GitHub:

  1. Install GitHub pull request management from Actioner App directory.
  2. Connect Slack and GitHub.
  3. Proceed to setup workflows.
  4. First, run Subscribe to GitHub events workflow, you need to enter Owner and Repository to get notified of the new PR events.
  5. Then, run Setup PR update channel workflow to create a Slack channel to get GitHub updates.

Once you’ve completed the steps above, whenever you open a PR, an ephemeral channel will be created, and you will start receiving GitHub pull request notifications in Slack.
