Building Slack apps | Slack
Customize functionality for your own workspace or build a beautiful bot to share with the world. Provide your ingenious integrations with a suitably configurable container. Build a Slack app.
What your apps do is up to you — maybe it performs one distinct task incredibly well or perhaps it orchestrates a technological concert between individual Slack features and your internal accounting service.
First-timer or seasoned veteran? Often it's best to just get started and learn along the way.
Your app can do these things and more.
Send rich & timely notifications with incoming webhooks.
Empower users to invoke workflows at will using slash commands.
Keep things friendly and conversational with bot users.
Install internal integrations exclusively to your workspace. No OAuth required.
Make messages more actionable and interactive with message buttons.
Read and write data with the Web, RTM, and Events APIs.
Carefully select and limit your apps access to fine-grained permission scopes.
Let teams install & log in to your app using OAuth, Add to Slack, & Sign in with Slack.
Building for everyone? Distribute your Slack app in our App Directory.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Your app can do a little. Your app can do a lot. It can be a simple tool, it can even be a bot.
Start by creating a Slack app for your workspace. Slack apps begin life locked down just for your workspace.
If you don't have a Slack workspace or just want your own personal sandbox to develop in, create a new workspace and return when ready. Just be sure to carefully decide where your Slack app will live. The app record cannot be moved to another workspace later.
Whether a Slack app first-time integrator or a seasoned veteran, it's often best to just get started and learn what's what along the way.
Here's what's in store for you on this heroic first step:
That's it. Once created, you have a Slack app to manage.
Before you start turning all the knobs and flipping all the switches, we wanted to let you know about a concept called internal integrations.
While all newly created Slack apps start their life installable only by your workspace, we recognize that the ultimate destiny of many, if not most, apps is to be used by your workspace exclusively.
Perhaps your app integrates with your hand-rolled bug tracker or that funky old database running on a 286 under the boss' desk. Perhaps it just integrates with your company culture but not necessarily with some other internal or external service. Maybe you're part of an Enterprise Grid organization and your app is useful for the team in the warehouse but not the team in the board room.
Whatever it is that these apps do is your business. We call this flavor of Slack app an internal integration.
Managing Slack apps
Name, configure, twist, shape, and install your Slack apps by first logging in to api.slack.com and navigating to the My Apps section at api.slack.com/apps. There you'll find a list of the applications you own or collaborate with and their current stage of the app development lifecycle.
Just click on the name of an application to configure settings for that app.
Can't find the app you're looking for? Make sure you're signed in to the right workspace and reload as necessary. You can sign in to multiple workspaces at once on api.slack.com.
App Development Lifecycle
The chart below describes the states that a Slack app can be and how they flow to one another.
Slack apps begin their life void of features, uninstalled. Waiting for you to fill them with potential and functionality. We hope you move your app through the first two stages. Unless you're developing for other workspaces, stages three and four are optional. We're happy you're developing on Slack at all stages.
Just after you create your Slack app, it's not really capable of much. You probably haven't begun coding. You haven't declared the platform features you plan to use in the app, like incoming webhooks or a bot user.
It's an empty vessel somehow full with limitless potential. After you add features to your app, you'll make it installable.
By default, newly created Slack apps will begin in this state. This might be the end of the lifecycle for your app. If you only ever need your own workspace to install your app, progress no further. This stage can be your lifelong home.
Your app can either use the button-based installation available in your application management console or you can use OAuth 2.0. Rest assured, your app can only be installed on your workspace either way.
When you add or remove new Slack app features, you'll need to install your app again.
This step is completely optional. It's entirely possible you'll never want another workspace to ever install your app.
By setting your app to this state, other workspaces will be able to use OAuth 2.0 to install or sign in to your app -- all they'll need is your client ID and for you to have done all the work to support OAuth.
For historical reasons, apps created before February 28th, 2017 will already be in this state. Feel free to lock your app down to just your workspace, returning to the comforts of stage 2. See your old apps for more information.
Slack apps open to installation by other workspaces have additional security requirements: your OAuth redirect URIs, interactive message action URLs, slash command invocation URLs, and Events API delivery locations must all support SSL.
This step is also completely optional. Becoming part of the directory is a very deliberate undertaking.
Once your app is submitted or part of the directory, you are granted a "development" version of your Slack app with its own dedicated Client ID and secret and installations. You'll need to re-submit your app for approval again whenever you change app-related items like the name, icon, authorization settings, or Slack app features.
We have a detailed tutorial all about the App Directory submission process.
Applications from antiquity
If you created your app before this most recent update to Slack apps on February 28th, 2017 then:
- By default your app is not locked to the workspace it was created on.
- to restrict other workspaces from installing your app, you'll want to mark it as "undistributed"
- un-distributing your app will result in it being un-installed from any workspace other than the one that owns it. Of course, it might just be the only workspace that has installed it! You know best.
- the OAuth scopes used by your application may not be yet part of your official application profile
- you'll want to navigate to your app's OAuth & Permissions section add your scopes to the inventory -- including commands, bot, or incoming-webhook if your app makes use of those features
- this is mainly to make re-installation easier when not using OAuth
- Familiarize yourself with the new management UI. Yes, we've moved some of your cheese.
Slack app management tour
After you create your app you will start out on the Basic Information page. Here you can see the features available for you to configure, see information about installing or distributing your app, configure your application's identity and delete your app.
Your application's identity
There are a few options for configuring your app's identity. You can add an icon used to represent your app, change the name of your app, and add a short description for your app.
Note that there will be quite a bit more information to fill out here if you submit your app to the App Directory.
OAuth & permissions
On the OAuth and Permissions panel you can add OAuth redirect URLs, choose some permission scopes, or revoke tokens from your app. For more information about OAuth and how it's used for Slack Apps see: OAuth, Add to Slack, Sign in with Slack, and Scopes.
You can also set a whitelist of IP addresses instructing Slack to accept connections from when using the Web API.
For some features, you will need a Verification Token which is provided on the Basic Information page. This is used to verify that requests are actually coming from Slack.
Consider it a shared secret between your app and Slack. Every request Slack send to your server should contain this token. By validating it's equality to the one provided in your app management console, you validate that it very likely originated from Slack.
We provide a wide range of granular scopes that allow you to request the exact permissions that your app needs. For example, if you only need to post updates to a channel once an hour, you should only request the incoming-webhook scope. The full inventory of scopes list the API methods that each scope corresponds to. Here are some examples:
- With the reactions:read and emoji:read scopes, your app can use related API methods to build a leaderboard of workspace members' reactions.
- By requesting the incoming-webhook scope, users can grant your app access to post messages to a Slack channel of their choice, just like a custom incoming webhook integration.
- By requesting the commands scope, authenticated users will have access to any commands that you have configured in your app.
- By requesting the bot scope, you will receive a bot user token upon completion of an OAuth flow. You can use this bot user token to connect to the Real Time Messaging API.
- By requesting other granular object scopes, like channels:read or files:write, you will be able to call their corresponding Web API methods.
See Slack app scopes for more information on incoming-webhook, commands, and bot scopes.
Enable features & functionality
There are many features to choose from when building a Slack app that each have a corresponding page for enabling them and setting them up. You can learn more about each by following the links below:
- Incoming webhooks are the simplest way to send messages into Slack. Often these are notifications of activity happening externally, but they are capable of many tricks, including...
- Interactive messages allow your messages to evolve beyond the conversation with attached action buttons
- Slash commands allow users to perform actions by typing commands into Slack at will. It's a kind of magic.
- Event subscriptions deliver need to know information as it happens to your servers, so you can choose what to do next
- Bot users are full of personality, allowing you to engage users conversationally
Of course, if you want to use the Web API or the RTM API you can do that with a Slack app too! The tokens yielded in the installation process are used to engage with both.
Once you've told us what platform features your app will use, it's time to install it.
By default, newly built Slack apps can only be installed on the workspace they belong to. Installing your app on other workspaces means learning the sad songs and waltzes of OAuth 2.0.
Installing your app to your workspace
We've made it triumphantly easy to install apps on your own workspace without needing to learn OAuth. To distribute your app for other workspaces to install, implement our OAuth 2.0 authentication flow and submit it to our App Directory. Our team will review your submission and work with you to get it listed.
Slack apps are carefully scoped to use only the permissions & capabilities needed to fitfully function.
When installing your app, users can review its capabilities and configure settings right within our OAuth-based authentication flow. For teams needing even more control, Slack apps can be carefully managed and approved by team administrators.
Installing your app to your workspace is easy! Once you've setup your features, click on the Install App to Team button found on the Install App page. If you add new permission scopes or Slack app features after an app has been installed, you will must reinstall the app to your workspace for changes to take effect.
If you do not have admin access to your workspace, you will need to request approval to install the app before you will be able to finish. If you just want to get started without worrying about that, we recommend creating your own workspace as a scratch space for development.
App collaborators can install apps this way too. If you wish to distribute it to other members of your workspace, you will need to set up an OAuth redirect URL and have them install it with OAuth and/or Add to Slack button or sharable URL.
Make installation more direct
Typically, Slack apps must present users with a web page containing a link to Slack's OAuth 2.0 installation flow. As users browse apps in the directory or native client and encounter an app they want to install, they first must visit this page to initiate installation.
Save users a step by providing Slack with a Direct Install URL, a location on your site that simply redirects the current user to Slack's OAuth authorize step directly.
If your app is both approved and listed in the app directory, you can utilize this Direct Install flow.
By configuring this link on your app management's basic information screen (look for Installing Your App) and enabling "Install from App Directory", users will be swiftly spirited away to the authorization flow.
When you save your Direct Install URL, Slack will attempt to send a simple HTTP GET request to your declared URL. If it doesn't detect a HTTP 302 redirect pointing back to a fully qualified slack.com/oauth/authorize URL (see below), you'll receive an error letting you know.
Building a Direct Install URL redirector
All your server needs to do is build the same URL to slack.com/oauth/authorize you would build for your on-site "Add to Slack" URL and instead of presenting it in a button, send a HTTP 302 redirect to it instead.
For example, if your app had a client ID of 12345.67890 and requested the channels:history and users:read scopes, you might build a redirect sequence reminiscent of this:
First Slack sends the user to your Direct Install URL:GET /slack/direct_install HTTP/1.1 Host: example.com
Then your server kindly redirects back to Slack's OAuth 2.0 authorization page:HTTP/1.1 302 Found Location: https://slack.com/oauth/authorize?client_id=12345.67890&scope=channels%3Ahistory%20users%3Aread&state=abcdefg
Resulting in the user jumping right into authorization. One point of friction removed.
You may continue to generate your own time or context sensitive state parameters and specific, pre-registered redirect_uri values as needed.
If you ever need to drop back to installation via your landing page, just configure your app again to use your landing page instead of your Direct Install URL.
Distributing your app to other workspaces
In order to distribute your app to other workspaces you may need to make a few configuration adjustments. You will need to add an OAuth redirect URL, make sure that features have been added, and remove any hardcoded information (like tokens etc.). While SSL is not required for Slash Commands, Event Subscriptions, or Interactive Messages when you are installing only on your workspace, for security purposes it is necessary when distributing to other workspaces. Then you can pass around the sharable URL or have people click on your embedded Add to Slack button.
Consider subscribing to app events to monitor your application's lifecycle around token revocations and uninstallations.
Team app installation restrictions
Some workspaces restrict application installation to administrators only, or to only apps officially listed in the Slack app directory. Teams can also use admin approval features where users can't directly install apps but can solicit for installation through a guided interface. Team administrators may then screen these requests and selectively approve for installation.
How users interface with your app
There are many ways your app may present itself and be discovered by users. Typically, Slack apps deal in the art of messaging.
- Messages your app produces surface in the conversational user interface typical of working in Slack, whether your app contains a bot user or not, your app is capable of having an in-channel identity.
- Installed apps containing slash commands will be present in the list of commands found by users invoking the workspace's slash command directory, typically by typing / in their chat box.
- Apps featuring bot users have a home in the sidebar under the Apps heading. Similar to the presentation of direct messages, only open conversations will be displayed.
- App suggestions are a superb way to train Slackbot to help you get the word out about your app.
- Admin and installation interfaces — the images, words, and other information you provide about your app will be made visible to teams and their users.
- Your app may appear in app directory interfaces, including directory interfaces in Slack and on the web.
- Your installed app has a home in Slack. When users click your app's icon, they'll encounter an About this app information pane.
To look your best in all these surfaces, be sure and follow our best practices and guidelines.
Learn more about submitting your app to the Directory
Want to distribute your Slack app so other workspaces can discover and install it? Once you're ready, submit it for review and consideration in our directory.
Apps submitted to the directory should be easy for workspaces to install and use. Our application review team will install and use your application and follow up with you for additional detail. As we receive many submissions, there may be a short delay before your application will be reviewed or approved.
Our Slack App Directory Checklist outlines the entire review and submission process.
Additionally, please review our API Terms of Service, Brand Guidelines, and Slack App Developer Policy.
When you're ready to submit:
- Select your app from https://api.slack.com/apps
- Choose Submit to App Directory from the left-hand menu
- Complete the presented checklist and proceed with the submission process
After distribution has been activated you have the option of deactivating by clicking on the Deactivate Public Distribution button. This will remove the app from any workspaces that have installed it aside from the original one you chose.
Note that this can not be done after your app is published in the app directory.
Suggesting apps to new users
Slackbot can suggest your directory-listed Slack app to new users. Find out all about app suggestions.
Not only can your Slack app do all those things but because it's yours, you and a chosen team of collaborators:
- Slack apps are owned and contained by the team they are created on.
- Slack apps may have multiple App Collaborators associated with it, and they can review & manage the application record. They can also add or remove other collaborators.
If you're reading this, then you, yourself, are likely an app creator and/or collaborator.
Collaborators like you may do such things as:
- View and alter basic information about your app, like its credentials and user-facing identity
- Select and configure which types of integrations your app is composed of: message buttons, the Events API, incoming webhooks, slash commands, bot users, etc.
- Assign and manage other Slack App Collaborators
- Install your Slack app on your workspace
- Submit a Slack app to be reviewed for inclusion in the App Directory, as well as manage the ongoing submission and re-submission process of a submitted app's associated beta application record.
- Delete a Slack app
Managing your app's Collaborators
The Collaborators tab allows App Collaborators to manage which members of the team are allowed to configure a Slack app.
The app creator is also a Collaborator, until they're not
The team member that created the application (maybe that's you?) is also automatically made an App Collaborator. After another Collaborator is assigned, the application creator may "leave" or be removed from the app's list of collaborators.
Adding trusted collaborators
Use the Add a team member control to add additional App Collaborators from the containing workspace. App Collaborators will have access to your app's credentials, so be sure and only add team members you trust with your Slack app's livelihood.
You may also assign your workspace's single or multi-channel guests as App Collaborators. These guests cannot delete a Slack app, nor modify your carefully pruned roster of co-conspirators.
Hovering over a Collaborator under Team members who can edit this app reveals buttons allowing app Collaborators to remove their fellow collaborators from the app, or for the currently signed in Collaborator to Leave the esteemed list of fellow App Collaborators.
Your team's friendly Slackbot will dispatch messages to fellow team Collaborators as changes to the roster are made — or in the unlikely event that a Slack app is deleted.
Slack apps can do a little. Slack apps can do a lot. What it does is up to you and we hope you'll give it some thought.

Getting started with the Slack API
The Slack API is made up of several different tools that enable you to build different kinds of Slack apps. In this guide, we'll cover the most common scenarios that products and services are building with Slack APIs. We'll also offer our best advice about how to save a bit of time and build the best possible Slack app for your needs.
Which API tools should I use?
Well, it depends! Our API tools let you extend Slack to play nicely with your team's workflow, external services, and other applications. But how do you figure out where to start, and which Slack APIs are best for you? You've come to the right place. Let us guide you through some examples that will help you pick the right tools for each job.
I run a service and want the simplest way for my users to integrate it with Slack.
Maybe you run a newsletter service that sends notifications to publishers when a new person signs up for their mailing list.
Or you're an e-commerce service and want to let your users get summaries of sales from their online store, either automatically or on demand.
Whatever kind of service you run: You want people to know the things they need to know, as quickly, and as easily, as possible. And the Slack button wants to help you out with that.
Best way to do this: Use the Slack button. The new Slack button is the simplest way to offer your service to teams using Slack. A Slack button app gives you incoming webhooks and slash commands wrapped in OAuth. You write the commands and the webhook that your app needs, and configure the options for your users. Then your users can install it in just a few clicks. Over the next few months, we'll be expanding the capabilities of apps that can be added via the Slack button, so now is a great time to get started with them! Read more about how to implement the Slack button on your site.
I want to post custom messages, links, images, and other content in my Slack team from other systems
Like most businesses today, you probably use multiple systems to keep things running, and they all have information you need throughout the day. Not all of those systems will have pre-built Slack integrations, and of the ones that do, they might not deliver the specific information that your team needs. In this case, you will need to create something for yourself.
Best way to do this as a custom feature for your team: With an incoming webhook. They're the simplest way to programmatically send messages into Slack. Simply send a JSON payload containing your message content to a pre-configured incoming webhook URL that your users set up for you, and Slack will turn it into a message for the right team, in the right channel. For more information and some examples, read our incoming webhook documentation.
I want to enable users to interact with my product from Slack
Let's say you have a dictionary tool, or a bug tracker, or a task management app, and you'd like your users to interact with it from within Slack.
For example, you'd like a way for users to type /todo list to get a list of tasks assigned to them, or /todo add Finish writing API guide to create a new task for themselves. Throw in a username to assign the task to one of your teammates — /todo for @mattMake some graphics for the API guide.
Best way to do this: Set up a slash command. This will let your users make queries or trigger external actions right from within Slack.
I want to build a real-time conversational bot
Lots of people are very excited about building bots these days. Bots allow you to create a conversational interface with any external service. It's not easy, but it's fun. To do this, create a bot user to connect to Slack and post messages, along with many other APIs.
Get news about future API updates
These are just a few of the many different kinds of apps that you can build on top of Slack. For more ideas, follow @SlackAPI on Twitter or read our collection of Slack App-related articles on Flipboard.
To learn about future enhancements to our APIs, register as an API developer, tell us a bit about yourself and the things you'd like to build, and we'll make sure you're the first to know about all the exciting things happening in the future.
Register as a Developer
Become an "official" integration
All of our official integrations go through a review process, whether they were developed in-house or by the third-party service. This process is currently a bit bottlenecked on our side, as we can only work on a handful of new integrations at a time. The good news is that we're making some changes to our integration platform that will give developers the ability to better manage and distribute their integrations in Slack, and to let our team review and approve them more quickly.
In the meantime, we recommend exploring our API tools to determine the type of integration you would like to build. Once you've got the hang of things and validated that the integration is useful for you and your users on Slack, tell us about your integration and we'll add you to our queue.
If you have questions not covered by this guide, or there's anything else you'd like to let us know about, you can contact us at [email protected]
FAQ | Slack
We know there's a lot to learn and read about all the integration points of the Slack platform. That's why we're giving you this. More to read, easier to skim.
We're sure we're missing critical tips. Let us know by tweeting to @SlackAPI!
How do I set up my developer environment?
There's no explicit sandbox or developer environment available to work against. Instead, you'll need to use a workspace you've created or are a member of.
It's best to keep your integration or app's ownership contained within the workspace that is responsible for it.
Start by building a Slack app to contain all of your work -- by default, it can only (& easily!) be installed on your own workspace. Follow the UI instructions to add features — most require that you provide a HTTP server Slack can reach.
While developing for your own workspaces or if developing internal integrations, HTTPS will not be required for requests sent from Slack. This is for ease in getting started; we strongly recommend using HTTPS even for internal integrations.
Many developers find using HTTP tunneling software effective while building apps. For one such story, consult this tutorial: Tunneling with ngrok.
How are incoming webhooks, slash commands, and bot users different?
All three integration types allow you to post messages within a channel but differ in how those messages are triggered and how users interact with your app.
You can use all of these integration types together in your Slack app.
- Incoming webhooks - send messages to a channel at will by using a specific URL. Best used when activity that would incite posting a message occurs in a remote service.
- Example: If you have an issue tracking system and want to post to a channel when a bug is created or resolved, use an incoming webhook invoked from your issue tracking system.
- Slash commands - members execute slash commands from within Slack, resulting in us triggering your server to return them a message. The message can either be displayed only to the executing user, or to the channel from which it was triggered.
- Example: Your slash command allows users to create and resolve bugs from the Slack command line with either action resulting in a message being displayed to that channel.
- Bot users - Your service monitors channels and direct messages for certain conversational triggers, like specific text in messages posted or emoji responses. As appropriate, your bot user posts messages or performs tasks inside or outside of Slack on a team's behalf.
- Example: Your bot monitors a channel's messages for specific issue IDs and sends the channel a message containing details about them.
- Example: Your bot tracks a team's emoji reactions and sends a message at the end of the day to celebrate those most used.
How do custom integrations and Slack apps differ?
On their own, custom integrations are for a specific workspace to use. An incoming webhook is a single custom integration. A bot user is a single custom integration. Same with a slash command. The tokens and credentials used for these custom integrations are intended only for the workspace that originated them.
A Slack app is a packaged collection of one or more platform features. They can optionally be made available for Slack workspaces to install and utilize. workspaces will use an OAuth 2.0 authorization flow to approve apps, resulting in workspace-specific OAuth tokens for use on their behalf.
Other differences include:
- Incoming webhooks packaged as Slack apps cannot change their channel, icon, and username at runtime, while custom integration-based webhooks can.
- The permission model afforded to bot users packaged as Slack apps is slightly different. Review the bot user method list for more detail.
We strongly recommend building internal integrations as part of a Slack app instead. Slack apps are better scoped, allowing your integration to only use the permissions they need. Additionally, you can use new features like interactive messages and the Events API.
How do I authenticate my requests to Slack?
When working with Slack apps or Web API, you'll often need to send access tokens, also known as bearer tokens, along with inbound requests using the token query parameter.
Some of the tokens you'll be given while going through the integration creation process. Other tokens you obtain by sending users through the OAuth 2.0 authentication flow.
When you're working with Slack apps, you'll be awarded access tokens after a user approves your application.
You can also obtain workspace-specific test tokens for use with the Web API using our token generator, but they should not be shared with the public or other workspaces.
By private URL
Your incoming webhooks URLs are unique for your integration or application and do not require token-based authentication. Slash command response URLs also already encode your integration or application's identity.
Webhook URLs generated by rtm.start also encode the information you need to connect, though requesting rtm.start itself requires a token as described above.
How does Slack authenticate its requests to my servers?
When you configure Outgoing webhooks, Slash commands and [Message buttons](/docs/message-buttons, you specify a URL for Slack to send requests when qualifying conditions are met. Slack also provides you a token related to that integration.
Slack sends that URL a JSON payload containing a token field. Compare that field to values you've received from Slack. See validating slash commands for more information.
When do authorization codes expire?
Authorization codes must be exchanged for an access token within 10 minutes by calling oauth.access as part of the authorization flow. Otherwise, the authorization code will expire and you will need to ask the user to go through OAuth again.
How do I revoke a token?
There is no programmatic way for you to revoke tokens issued to your integration or app. Members and administrators can remove your app through their workspace administration interface.
Though it's somewhat of a nuclear option, you also have the ability to revoke all tokens from your developer dashboard by selecting your application and using the Revoke all tokens button found there.
How do I reset my client secret?
To reset your client secret, go to your developer dashboard, select the application you are concerned about, use the Change secret button found there.
Don't forget to use your new secret when exchanging authorization codes for access tokens while authorizing users and workspaces with OAuth 2.0.
How long are token strings?
Token strings could potentially be as long as 255 characters. Historically and typically, they've been shorter. Learn more.
How do I use API methods with my bot user token?
When a Slack App is approved that contains a bot user, you're awarded two tokens. The bot user token is for performing certain actions directly as the bot user, like posting a message or connecting to the real time messaging API.
If you want to make Web API calls more generally, based on the scopes you've negotiated, you'll want to use the broader token you were awarded at approval time.
Why does Slack never reach my slash command URL?
Typically, if Slack cannot reach your slash command URL it's because it's either inaccessible, does not have a valid, verifiable SSL certificate, or because our request is timing out for some reason.
Slack invokes slash command URLs from its servers rather than from a Slack client app like Slack for Mac. This means that the URL we're trying to reach must be accessible to Slack's servers.
To determine whether your certificate is valid, consider using this tool provided by SSL Labs.
How do I validate a slash command's origin?
Keep track of the validation tokens and team IDs Slack gives you when commands are created and teams approve your app. Always validate that the token field in an incoming slash command request has been issued to you by Slack and scope your data for that workspace.
Why can't I override the channel, icon, or user name of my incoming webhook?
You won't be able to override any of these fields when using an incoming webhook attached to a Slack app. Instead, those values will be provided from your Slack app configuration and any configuration provided by the team.
If you're using a custom integration, verify that the icon URL you're providing corresponds to a publicly accessible image resource and that the provided username or channel is valid.
How do I use message buttons with a custom integration that's not part of a Slack app?
At this time a Slack app is required to functionally attach buttons to messages. Message buttons require a configured action URL that is part of a Slack application record.
Can I use a self-signed certificate for my action URL?
No, SSL certificates must be signed by a reputable certificate authority.
You may want to consider using one of the following low-cost providers: * Let's Encrypt * CloudFlare
How is the API rate limited?
Slack rate limits all aspects of platform use with many factors. Rate limits are currently unpublished. Review our rate limiting documentation for more detail.
The guiding spirit of Slack's rate limiting is to ensure that teams are able to communicate effortlessly and without distraction.
Because the limits are unpublished, you won't know that you're about to hit a rate limit in advance. You will receive a HTTP 429 Too Many Requests rate limited message in response to a request and will then need to wait for the next rate limiting window to open.
The next rate limit is indicated by a HTTP header called Retry-After, presented in seconds to wait before attempting another request. If the value were 10, then you should wait 10 seconds or more before retrying that request.
You may find that you can't perform certain bursty actions, like attempting to message every member of a large workspace simultaneously. In some cases, hitting rate limits may be a symptom that there are better ways to to accomplish your goal. Some times you just need to work slower.
Bot users associated with many workspaces may hit rate limits while using rtm.start too quickly. Queue up your connection requests or throttle otherwise after your service restarts.
Finally, developers working with the Real Time Messaging API have special considerations worth reading in context.
For more information, consult our rate limiting documentation.
How do I work with files?
The Real Time Messaging API and other API methods reference file objects that contain a suite of details about the content type of the file and absolute URLs where those files can be retrieved or used for display.
As of January 4th, 2016, applications must provide authentication to access the actual files that file objects reference. There's a blog post discussing this change of behavior.
File objects contain url_private and url_private_download fields, as well as fields for private thumbnail URLs as applicable.
To retrieve these URLs, you must provide a HTTP Authentication header containing a bearer token that's been awarded the files:read or read scopes.
For example, to retrieve a thumb_360 field containing https://files.slack.com/files-tmb/Z0CHK-THSCH5-5SZ0UT/cheese.jpg and your bearer token was VALID_TOKEN, you'd need to send a request like this:GET https://files.slack.com/files-tmb/Z0CHK-THSCH5-5SZ0UT/cheese.jpg Authorization: VALID_TOKEN
How do I find a channel's ID if I only have its #name?
For public channels, use channels.list to retrieve the list of channels. The list includes each channel's name and id fields.
For private channels, use groups.list. It works the same way.
Many developers keep the list of channels in memory for swifter lookups. Poll the method occasionally to refresh your inventory.
How do I find a channel's name if I only have its ID?
You can use similar instructions to the question above, or you can use dedicated methods to look up a channel by its ID.
For public channels, use channels.info to obtain a specific channel's information, including its name.
For private channels, use groups.info. You'll find everything you want to know about a specific private channel.
Do channel IDs stay the same when the name of the channel changes?
Channel IDs remain the same even when the names are changed, but if a channel becomes private the ID will change.
Why are private channels referred to as groups?
Private channels were first conceived of as group objects, and the names of the objects, events, and methods were chosen then. We decided that "private channels" made more sense for users, but already had developers, both internal and external, using the group namespace.
When you see references to these groups, just rewire your brain to call them private channels instead, even though you'll be calling them group in your code.
How do I retrieve a single message?
Use channels.history and a token with the channels:history scope to retrieve a specific message in a channel.
You'll need that message's ts value, which uniquely identifies it within a channel. You'll also need that channel's ID value.
channels.history takes a latest parameter, which you'll provide that ts value for. By specifying true for the inclusive parameter and setting the count to 1, you'll receive exactly that message in return:GET /api/channels.history?token=TOKEN_WITH_CHANNELS_HISTORY_SCOPE&channel=C2EB2QT8A&latest=1476909142.000007&inclusive=true&count=1
Real Time Messaging API
How do I connect to a websocket?
The first step is making a typical HTTP request to the rtm.connect method. Within that response, you'll find a url field beginning with the URI protocol wss://.
Then, use a Websocket client to open a long-lived connection to that time-sensitive URL. While the connection is open, you'll be streamed events associated with the workspace you're connecting on behalf of and can in turn send messages.
Typical HTTP client libraries and tools do not support connecting to websockets directly. You will need to find a client library for your preferred programming environment.
When should I use the Events API and when should I use the RTM API?
Choose the Events API if:
- You want to precisely scope the data you receive to just what your app needs
- You prefer or must use an inbound request model due to a) your hosting service not being able to maintain an outbound websocket connection b) you prefer to scale your application on an inbound request model instead of maintaining multiple long-lived websocket connections
- You're converting a outgoing webhook integration into something installable as a Slack app.
- You don't need data presented to you in real time as a firehose of information
- You find the retry behavior reassuring for redundancy reasons
Or choose the RTM API if:
- You can't or won't create a Slack app to contain your creations
- You're building an on-premise integration or have no ability to receive external HTTP requests
- You're working on a distributed or mobile application without a server backend
- You just prefer working with websockets. That's cool.
- You need events that just aren't supported by the Events API
- You need compatibility with today's existing tools
- Sending user_typing events is important for your app or bot user's sense of self and agency
- You want data feed redundancy by opening additional websocket connections, or perhaps will augment with the Events API anyhow
- You want messages to be delivered to you in real time
- Receiving events in absolute order is important to you.
Or why not use the Events API and RTM API together?
- Receive event data two different ways to help redundancy needs
- You want to work with the Events API but you need time to transition from one to the other
- You want to better separate concerns or follow a more service-oriented architecture
- You want to offer the perks presented by either API as a premium application feature.
How do I make my bot appear active and present?
The answer depends on whether you're using the Events API with or without the RTM API.
With the Events API, you must toggle your presence by managing your app's bot user config.
With the RTM API, your bot is marked active while connected to a websocket.
See bot presence for further
How does my app get approved for the directory?
- Build your integration points with Slack using Custom Integrations
- Create a Slack app record to package your integration points and obtain your app's platform credentials for use in authentication and the "Add to Slack" button.
- Review this checklist to make sure your app is prepared for approval process.
- Submit your application for review.
- Slack will review your application and approve it if it meets our criteria.
Please be patient as our team regularly reviews submissions. To help the process go as smoothly as possible, we strongly recommend making sure you've followed the checklist before submitting.
What happens if I make changes to an application that has been approved for the directory?
If you need to update your approved app to request new OAuth scopes, include message buttons or add other new features, find your application's configuration page at https://api.slack.com/apps and indicate you'd like to make changes.
We'll then automatically create a copy of your published app for you to use while making and testing updates in a sandboxed environment.
Once you're ready to push the updated version of your app to users, simply re-submit it for review using the process described above.
What kind of changes to my app will require being reviewed again?
If you've submitted your app to the directory but need to make changes to how your app or bot is described, or changes to the integration types packed into your app, or to request additional permissions, you'll need your app to be reviewed again.
Use the beta application corresponding to your submitted Slack app to make modifications to any of these features:
- Requesting new OAuth permission scopes
- Changing your message button action URLs
- Changing your slash command execution URLs & other details about your slash command
- Changing your Events API subscription URLs or subscriptions
- Changing your bot user's username
- Changing your app's OAuth configuration
- Changing details about how your application is presented in the directory
- Application description
- Contact information
- Application icon
- Policy & Website URLs
Your client secret and verification tokens may be regenerated as needed, without requesting further review.
Do I need to submit my Slack App to the directory if I don't want to?
No, only submit your app to the directory if you want your app to be discoverable and installable from the directory. If you don't submit your app, we won't display it there but it will be installable by any workspace you give the authorization URL to.
Legacy custom integrations
Are custom integrations deprecated?
No, custom integrations are still documented and available to create and configure. We do strongly encourage all developers and users working with custom integrations to utilize internal integrations as part of a Slack app instead.
What can custom integrations do that Slack apps cannot?
- Outgoing webhooks are not available as part of Slack apps, though you can build somewhat similar functionality using the Events API and the Web API together.
- Legacy incoming webhooks allow you to dynamically set the authorship and destination for posted messages. In Slack apps, you must create a new webhook for each destination and authorship is tied directly to your application.
What can Slack apps do that custom integrations cannot?
Who moved my cheese?
It was @colonel_mustard in the #conservatory with the :fork_and_knife:. A custom and internal investigation will follow this Slack app fact.
Scaling your app
How do I avoid long response times and timeouts while working on behalf of large workspaces?
- If you're using the RTM API, use rtm.connect to initiate your websocket connection instead of rtm.start. rtm.connect returns just the data you need to open your connection.
- If you must rtm.start, use the no_latest parameter to remove the latest field from each channel object.
- If using channels.list, use the exclude_members parameter to trim long membership lists from each channel object.
Team vs. workspace
Why is an ID for a workspace is called team_id, not workspace_id?
Our bad. We used to overuse the term, team which could mean two different things — the people you talk to, as well as the Slack workspace, where the place you do work!
Now we call workspace for all the Slack workspaces, however our API remains the same as before. Wherever you see some objects contains team_id, it really is an ID for the workspace! In the API world, we use the two terms interchangeably.
