JFrog has introduced a new Slack integrator For JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray. The new JFrog app for Slack enables developers to notify an extended team of stakeholders in real-time about significant software development events, such as new security vulnerabilities or licensing compliance violations, allowing them to optimize release cycles and reduce time-to-resolution.
“Collaboration has always been an integral part of DevOps, but when it comes to security-related events, you need to communicate early and often. We are thrilled to work with Slack – one of the world’s leading collaboration tools – on enhancing the way developers work today so they can deliver stronger features, faster releases, continuous updates, and improved security for their entire DevOps pipeline,” said Stephen Chin, vice president of Developer Relations, JFrog.
The JFrog app for Slack combines artefact management and security with operational efficiency to boost company results. It lets one or more Slack channels to receive notifications, information, and actions connected to specific software incidents. For example, developers can communicate vulnerability and licensing compliance notifications with a broader team of stakeholders directly from their workstations, based on policies set up in JFrog Xray.
The interactive notifications allow receivers to take action, such as create “ignore” rules, view details, and so on. From within the Slack channel, you can pause, delete, or invoke the JFrog Platform for more information about notifications.
