Install the Sym Slack App

Sym provides a fully Slack-guided experience for setting up your first Approval Flow.


Sym's Slack app can be installed directly from this link.

Once you've installed the app, run the /sym, and follow the instructions from there.

Running /sym for the first time

When you run the /sym command for the first time, you'll see a two-page introduction that tells you a little bit about the Sym platform, and then provides instructions on how to proceed.

Continuing setup

If you follow the instructions in the Slack app, your next steps will be:

  • Install the symflow CLI
  • Log in, generate a starter directory and apply Terraform to finish your configuration
  • Run /sym again to see a simple Approval Flows in action

From there, you can customize your flow by adding an integration like Okta, AWS IAM Identity (SSO), GitHub, or by adding a Reporting destination for tracking and audit purposes.
