AWS Chatbot inital Setup / Organization Feature

1

Hi, does anyone know if theres an hidden API or a workaround to do the initial setup for AWS Chatbot automatically. Background information we want to user AWS Chatbot in an big AWS orgnaization with hundrets of AWS Accounts, i want to configure AWS Chatbot, trough AWS CDK and i dont want to do the initial AWS Chatbot setup in all accounts manually, even a Organization Feature would be helpful in this case.

Currently, it is possible to tie SNS topics and Slack channels to AWS Chatbot with CDK and CloudFormation.
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cdk/api/v2/docs/aws-cdk-lib.aws_chatbot.CfnSlackChannelConfiguration.html

However, you will need to manually do the work up to Step 1 of 5 in the following document, which gives Slack workspace access to your AWS account.

Hi Riku, i know that i can do that manually, but i don't have time to do that in hundrets of AWS Accounts, so it would be nice to have either a AWS Organisation Feature to do that once, or as Werner Vogels is saying - "work backwards from their use cases. And then come up with a minimal and simplest form of API that you can actually offer" - that AWS is giving us a 100% automation approach for that :)

Unfortunately, there should be no way to automate this process at present.
