Atomist acts as a bot in your Slack team, and can take these actions:
- Listen for messages and commands directed at the bot
- Send notifications in channels that the bot has been invited to
- Send notifications via direct message
When you authorize the Atomist Slack app, it requests the following permissions. For the bot to operate properly, all of these scopes must be granted.
|Slack Scope||How Atomist Uses It|
|bot||Enables the bot to hear and respond to channel activity, such as bot commands and events.|
|channels:write||Enables the bot to create channels and write messages to channels. For example, when you create a new project with Atomist, the bot can create a channel that will be associated with the project’s repository.|
