To access Gainsight Sally within Slack, Sally must be added to the Slack team. The members of the Slack team are then brought into Gainsight and given access permissions to Sally. After Sally is added to your Slack team, you can manage users (give/revoke access to users in Slack to Gainsight) and also provide access to users outside of your org.

For end user instructions, refer to Use Gainsight Sally in Slack and Sally FAQs.

To add Sally to your Slack team:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Sally > Slack.
  2. Click Add to Slack. The Sign in Slack dialog appears.

Note: A Slack team can be authorized in only one tenant (Gainsight Org). You cannot authorize a Slack team with more than one Gainsight org. For testing purposes, it is recommended to create a dummy Slack team and authorize it with Gainsight.

  1. Review the information and click Authorize. If authorization is successful, an authorization successful message appears.
  2. After successful authorization, your team is visible in the Administration > Sally > Slack screen.

  • Manage Users - Click on this option to manage users in Gainsight. This navigates to Administration > User Management screen.
  • Reauthorize - Click on this option to reauthorize Gainsight Sally with your Slack team. This option is useful if a Slack Admin’s credentials are no longer valid, then a new Slack Admin can use this option to reauthorize Sally.
  • Revoke - Click on this option to remove access to Gainsight Sally for your team.
  1. Click Manage Users. The User Management screen appears.
  • This screen shows the list of users that are present in Slack and not added to Gainsight. You can select the users you wish to add to Gainsight and click ADD USER TO GS option to add them to Gainsight.

  • New Users - A new record in GS User object is created
