Slack is an enterprise software platform that allows teams and businesses of all sizes to communicate effectively.

With the Nosto Slack integration for UGC, you can now utilize Slack to receive and interact with your Nosto UGC Notifications! Current notifications that are available include alerting you or your desired Slack channel of a newly rights-approved piece of content.


You must be either an Owner or Admin of Slack to authorize new app connections.

If unsure, and run into an authorization error during this setup, it will be necessary to contact the Slack Owner/Admin, to proceed. There are two methods to achieve this:

  1. Ask your Slack Owners/Admins to temporarily permit you to authorize the Nosto App (once the Nosto app is authorized, permissions can be reverted).

  2. If your Nosto platform has an unused seat(s), invite your Slack Owners/Admins to your UGC account to install and configure the Slack integration.


Go to UGC Integrations > View All Integration and locate Slack, the configuration page will be loaded. To configure the plugin, it's as simple as adding a Slack connection/authorization.

UGC Interactions:

In addition to the real-time notifications, the Slack plugin can also provide interactive functionality! With each rights-approved notification, you can action your UGC Tiles directly from Slack itself.

  1. To enable the interactive functionality, navigate to your Slack plugin configuration page via Plugins > View All Plugins > Slack (Configure).

  2. From the list of connections, simply enable the "Interaction Buttons" option for those you wish to make interactive.

Currently, the interactive options include downloading the rights-approved asset to your desktop and modifying the current status (i.e. publish, queue, disable) of the Tile in your Stack.
