Sync Slack Usergroup with Oncall Schedule

Get Away with keeping up the Slack group and calendar.

Update users in the usergroup automatically with the oncall status and begin tagging with @sre-oncall. This can be integrated with your own custom rotation or the Pagerduty/OpsGenie schedule.

What are we looking for?

Synchronizing the on-call schedule with a Slack user group involves ensuring real-time updates, managing API rate limits and authentication, and handling discrepancies between the scheduling tool and Slack. Additionally, ensuring data consistency and managing permissions to prevent unauthorized changes are critical challenges.
