Authorization

When you add a Slack Admin card to a flow for the first time, you'll be prompted to set up a connection for that channel. You will have to be a member that channel. Setting up a connection will allow you to connect the flow to your Slack Admin account, save the data, and reuse that connection the next time you build a flow with this card.

Requirements:

  • You need a Plus or Enterprise Grid plan with Slack to establish connections for the Slack Admin connector.
  • On a Plus plan, only org owners and admins can generate a token for a connection to the SCIM API. To use the Slack Admin connector, the account that was used to generate the token must remain as an owner or admin.
  • On an Enterprise Grid plan, only org owners and admins can use the Slack Admin connector with the SCIM API to modify users. To make other SCIM updates, the account used must remain as an owner or admin.
  • The generated token can only be used to take actions on accounts with the same or few permissions. For example, if an admin account generates a SCIM token, they can take action on other admins or members. They can't take action on owners.

You can create multiple connections and manage them from the Connections page.

A connection for the Slack Admin connector can only point to one Slack workspace. In an Enterprise Grid organization, if an account for a connection contains multiple workspaces, the connection will fail.

To create a new connection from an Action card:

  1. Click New Connection.

  2. Add a Connection Nickname. This is useful if you plan to create multiple connections to share with your team.

  3. Click Create.

  4. Select a Slack account. If you are not already signed into a Slack account, you will be prompted to do so.

  5. Click Authorize to grant access to your Slack data. Note that this allows the flow to send messages on your behalf.

You can reuse this connection any time that you use the Slack card in a flow. You can also set up and save multiple connections to share them with your teammates.
