Okta is a service which provides Single Sign-On ability.

Okta Gmail app
Register a new account, go to the Get started, in the Use single sign-on click on the Add app:
Find Gmail Inbox application:
Leave defaults on the next page:
In this current case, I’m configuring a shared mailbox account access which will be used by various users.
Thus, choose the Users share a single username and password set by administrator type, set the Email type in the в Application username format and configure username and password:
In the Assignments, you can specify which application will be available for user/groups.
Chose the All users access here for the mailbox created above:
Check the access – go to the My applications:
Chrome Okta plugin
Install the Okta plugin:
Log in via the browser and your mailbox is available now:

Chose the User sets username and password:
Go to the Applications, click on the Edit:
And set your Slack’s credentials:
