The integration for Slack enables ARMO users to receive security alerts over Slack channels. Alerts can be filtered to control their volume by configuring their severity level.

When ARMO Platform scans your cluster, you will receive notifications on Slack regarding the following:

  1. A new vulnerability is detected in your cluster (severity is configurable)
  2. A fix is available for a vulnerability that affects your cluster (severity is configurable)
  3. The Compliance score has decreased by > X%
  4. A new cluster admin was added


ARMO Helm chart version: 1.17.0+
