After clicking 'Add to Slack', you will be directed to the 'Allow' page.
Be sure to select the correct workspace associated with your Nightfall account.
After you click 'Allow', you will be directed to setup instructions. Complete these steps to start receiving alerts.
Note: Upon installation, the bot must be added to the channels that you would like to monitor
To invite the bot to a channel, you can use the command depicted below:
/invite @Nightfall Pro #[channel]
If you would like to have Nightfall add the bot to all your public channels, please reach out to [email protected], and we can help with the request.

Installing Nightfall Enterprise DLP for Slack

Walkthrough Video - Slack Enterprise:
The screenshot below depicts a user that is on the Slack Enterprise tier.
Please select the ‘Authorize’ option to Authorize the Discovery API access into the Slack environment. This will require you to be a Workspace Owner in Slack.
After clicking 'Authorize', you will be directed to the 'Allow' page. Be sure to select the correct workspace associated with your Nightfall account before clicking 'Allow'. Once complete, Nightfall will be able to access the Discovery API.
If this authorization fails, it most likely means that the Discovery API is not yet enabled in your Slack organization. Please contact your Slack sales rep or email [email protected] to enable this.
After granting access to the Discovery API, you will be directed back to the dashboard to install the Nightfall Enterprise bot. Please click 'Install' to grant our bot access to your Slack workspace.
Now, please select the ‘Install’ option.
After clicking 'Install', you will be directed to another 'Allow' page. Again, please be sure to select the correct workspace associated with your Nightfall account before clicking 'Allow'.
The workspace you select here will be the one in which Nightfall creates new private channels in which to send you DLP alerts and triage the quarantine. Once complete, Nightfall will be installed in your Slack workspace.

Direct Message Retention Policy Note

As part of our continued commitment to protecting your business, we have identified a potential update for the Nightfall for Slack Enterprise configuration to encompass scanning edits in Direct Messages. Tracking these edits will expand visibility into sensitive data being shared in your organization and we recommend updating this configuration as soon as possible.
This is an easy update to your Slack Retention Policy and their team is committed to helping you do so quickly. Simply reach out to [email protected] or [email protected] and request to update your Retention Policy to “Keep all messages, including revision history.”
Once this is completed, edits within Slack Direct Messages will be available for Nightfall to scan for sensitive information. If this is already configured, no further action is necessary.
If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. Channel Creation Error Note Note: If you see an error upon this installation, mentioning a 400 error with a "restricted action", in the format below, please reference the help article below to remediate:
