November product updates will take effect on November 9, 2018.

Added Features

Slack Integration

By integrating Slack with Kintone, you can send a notification using a Slack direct message to the person who has been set as the assignee of the task. This allows for easy task management when using both a Kintone App and Slack. 

Slack Integration needs to first be enabled by a Kintone Administrator from Users & Systems Administration. For more details, see Allowing the User of Integrations. Once enabled, a Slack Integration link will appear in the App Settings tab of an app, as shown below.

Product Update

For more details on completing the setup between Slack and Kintone, see the articles below.

OAuth Client Added for Advanced Custom Integrations

Kintone Administrators will be able to authenticate API requests using OAuth 2.0. 

Note: Only for Confidential Client, Authorization Code Grant Types

Before OAuth was added, using the REST API required Basic Authentication of login and password or the use of an API TOKEN. However, these methods can have some critical issues, for example, the password is stored in the integration program which can cause a security risk, or some functions will not work because user's rights have been limited. When using OAuth clients, there is no need to share passwords with the integration program. 

OAuth Client Registration:

1. Click the gear wheel and select Users & System Administration.
Product Update
2. Under System Administration, select Integrations.

3. Click Add OAuth Client, fill out the required fields, and click Save
