Slack Adapter for OIC by Daniel Martins Teixeira

Blog: PaaS Community


The Slack adapter for Oracle Integration Cloud was released recently and delivers an easy way of Integrating with Slack.

Slack and other platforms with similar capabilities changed the way we work, and the way we interact with our colleagues. The boost in productivity and collaboration with these types of platforms is incredible. Slack is also a verb nowadays (let me slack you), that alone is enough to show its impact!

Slack Adapter Capabilities

The Slack Adapter offers outbound integration with Slack on the Oracle Integration platform. You can create outbound integrations that invoke the Slack application so you can manage channels, invite users, get profile information, manage chat and groups, upload files, and perform search operations.

More details on the documentation page.

Use Cases

The first use case that comes to mind is about notifications – Traditionally a notification is an email – but instead of relying on an email, you can publish those notifications into a dedicated channel, or tag the proper team/individual. This will allow a transparent handling and collaboration of all notifications!

Let’s now think on Sales Orders – When a new order/opportunity is created in the CRM system you can create a new slack channel with all team members, or you can tag someone that has a particular task waiting to be fulfilled for example. Read the complete article here.
