Slack slash commands

Introduced in GitLab 8.15

Slack commands give users an extra interface to perform common operations from the chat environment. This allows one to, for example, create an issue as soon as the idea was discussed in chat. For all available commands try the help subcommand, for example: /gitlab help, all review the full list of commands.

First, navigate to the Slack Slash commands service page, found at your project's Settings > Services, and you find the instructions there:

Slack setup instructions

Once you've followed the instructions, mark the service as active and insert the token you've received from Slack. After saving the service you are good to go!
