How the connection HackenProof -> Slack works
This guide explains how our Slack bot can help companies when they run a bounty program at HackenProof.
As you know, HackenProof uses a ticket-based system that has different stages of reports processing.
Once you connect your bug bounty program to your Slack server, the bot will send notifications about the following:
new reports (that includes the Program name, Report title, Report severity, and Report URL)
report status changes
report severity changes
! The Slack bot will not re-send messages when changes happen. The bot will change the previous message that is related to a specific report.
