Third-party Application Approvals

We’ve been working on improvements to how third-party applications are managed at the workspace level. Admins on the Plus plan will now be able to approve or deny requests to install third-party applications from other members.

Visit your workspace application settings to turn on this feature. All existing installed applications on your workspace will be automatically approved. Once application approvals have been turned on, team members will have to request approval during the authorization flow, providing an optional reason for why they would like to install the application into your workspace. If an application has been previously denied, they will see a message to that effect, along with the reason why the application was denied, if one was provided. Admins will then receive a notification about the new request and can choose to approve or deny the request. These notifications can be configured in your notification settings. Once the request has been answered, the original requester will also be notified of the response.

From the application settings page, you can also deny a previously approved application, approve a previously denied application, or revoke authorization for an installed application. Learn more about third-party application approvals here.
