Interact with Zendesk tickets direct in Slack

With Zendesk’s integration for Slack, you can view and interact with your tickets without having to leave your Slack workspace. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps required to install and get started with this integration.

What you’ll need

  • A Slack workspace you can install apps in
  • Admin access to a Zendesk Account

This will take you to your Slack workspace page. If you’re not logged in, you’ll be asked to log in. Make sure the right Slack workspace is selected and allow Zendesk to access the workspace.

Voilà! You should receive a Slack notification saying your Zendesk integration is installed.

Invite Zendesk to Your Channel

To receive messages about your Zendesk tickets, you need to invite the Zendesk app to a channel. Open the channel where you want to receive messages, and enter the slash command /invite @Zendesk.
