Why do I need to give permissions to Ben?

Ben uses various permissions to operate properly. When adding a new connector, you can verify the permissions requested.

We always request the least permissions possible in order to operate our product. Permissions we ask are generally of the following natures:

  • Read the content of your company's knowledge usually captured in tools like Notion or Slack in order to contextualize and enrich it,

  • Read specific events

We suggest you verify that
