Respond to Command - Real Time

Send an immediate response to a user's slash command. If your flow runtime is greater than three seconds, use the Respond to Command - Delayed action instead. Slash commands are submitted in the message box in Slack, though they are technically not messages. They cause a payload of data to be sent from Slack to an app.

This action should be paired with a Slash Command event.

Unless otherwise indicated, field types are text.


  • Command

    • Response URL: The URL for response.

    • Message Text: The content of the message to send to the user.

    • Response Type(drop-down): The visibility of the response (Visible to Channel or Visible to User).

    • Attachments(object): JSON code formatted according to Slack specifications. See Enabling interactivity with Slash Commands.
