Announcing the Azure Repos app for Slack

Karthik RG

Managing codebase is a team effort. It requires great deal of discipline and coordination among developers to have clean, ship-ready master. This involves frequent communication between a developer who writes the code and people who review the same. Slack is one of the most popular communication platforms where developers across the hierarchy collaborate to build and ship products.

Today, we are excited to announce the availability of Azure Repos app for Slack which helps users to monitor their code repositories.

Users can set up and manage subscriptions to get notifications in their channel whenever code is pushed/checked in, pull requests (PRs) are created, updated and more. Users can leverage the presence of subscription filters to customize what they hear in the channel. Additionally, previews for pull request URLs help users to initiate discussions around PRs and keep the conversations contextual and accurate.

For more details about the app, please take a look at the documentation or go straight ahead and install the app.

We’re constantly at work to improve the app, and soon you’ll see new features coming along, including the ability to create bulk subscriptions for all the repositories in a project. Please give the app a try and send us your feedback using the /azrepos feedback command in the app or on Developer Community.
