If you are using the Jeli Slackbot, you will have the option to assign yourself a role, e.g., Incident Commander, Communications Lead, or any other custom role you’ve added in the Jeli web app. Jeli will add the user who opened the incident as the Incident Commander by default if you do not choose one using the /jeli open modal. You can always update the Incident Commander later in the incident's lifecycle.
