Details on setting up Codex with Slack

Last updated on April 29, 2022

Slack App Install guide

  1. In Slack create a channel called codex-log; our app currently reports only to a channel with this name
  1. Open VSCode and go to the Codex extension. At the bottom click select codices - you must be the admin of the codex you wish to connect to Slack. Click the Slack icon to start connecting Codex to Slack
  1. You’ll be taken to the Slack page to confirm connecting Codex to your slack - confirm
  1. You’ll be brought to a basic success page that will then open Slack
  1. In Slack you will need to connect to the channel you created called codex-log
  1. 🎉 You’re done! Now when someone creates context in Codex it will be reported into the Slack channel and your team can click the handy “Open in VSCode” link to be taken directly into the file at the line of the code block (as long as the repository is present on the local machine)
