We have made bunch of improvements to our GitHub app in Slack and Microsoft Teams.

Slack

1. Introduced comment capability within Pull request notification cards

We have now added support to add comments on your pull requests directly from the notification card in Slack.

2. Introduced threading for Pull request notifications

Notifications for any Pull request will be grouped under a parent card as replies. The parent card always shows the latest status of the PR along with other meta-data like title, description, reviewers, labels and checks. Threading gives context, improve collaboration and reduces noise in the channel.

3. Added support to turn on/off threading for Issues and Pull requests

If you do not want to use threading or need some flexibility, we are also rolling out an option to turn on/off threading for issues and pull requests.

  • The content of the chat is automatically added into the description along with the link to the MS Teams conversation.
  • The last used repo in the channel will be automatically filled in. However, you can go ahead and change to the repo if needed.
  • You can optionally fill in labels, assignees and milestones when you create an issue.
  • Once the issue is created you will receive a confirmation card in the channel where you created the issue.

2. Enhanced the PR notification cards in Channel and Personal App

  • Introduced PR comment capability in GitHub personal app.

We are excited to announce that GitHub app in Slack and Microsoft Teams now supports GitHub Actions workflow notifications.

You can now subscribe to your repository and get notified about GitHub Actions workflow run status from your channel or personal app.
/github subscribe owner/repo workflows

  • You will get notified when a new workflow run is triggered. And you can track the live status of the jobs.
  • You can track the approval notifications as a reply in the thread and you can approve the notifications directly from channel/personal app.
  • Once the workflow is completed, you will get a update as a reply in the thread so that you can complete context and history about the workflow run.
  • If something fails, you can choose to rerun the workflow in place and you can also enable debug logs if needed.

Workflow notification filters

Getting notified about each and every workflow run can be noisy. So, we are providing you capability to filter the notifications based on your requirement. You can filter your actions workflows notifications based on name, event, actor and/or branch. You can filter the notifications as below.

/github subscribe owner/repo workflows:{name:"your workflow name" event:"workflow event" branch:"branch name" actor:"actor name"}

  • name: Name of your workflow
  • event: The event on which the workflow is triggered. You can find all the available events list here.
  • actor: The person who triggered or responsible for running of the workflow
  • branch: The branch on which the workflow is running. Only in the cases where pull_request event is included, the branch will be the target branch the pull request is created for.

Note: When you configure workflow notifications without passing any filters, it is configured by default for workflows triggered via pull requests targeting your default branch.
