Remove User from Channel

Remove a user from a Slack channel.

By default, only a workspace admin or owner can remove users from a channel. Additional people can be granted this ability by updating channel management permissions in Slack. See Workspace administration.

If your workspace has a large number of channels, this card may exceed the 60 second time limit while trying to populate the Channel dropdown list. This timeout can also occur when testing a card.


Field Definition Type Required
Channel List of available channels.

This field shows a maximum of 200 public channels and 200 private channels. Even if the number of public or private channels is fewer than 200, API limitations may prevent some channels from appearing in the Channel dropdown list.

The dropdown displays only unarchived channels where the user who created the Slack connection is a member. To specify an unlisted public or private channel, select the Enter Channel ID option and enter the Channel ID.

If a failure occurs and no channels are listed in the dropdown, then only the Enter Channel ID option appears.

Dropdown TRUE
Field Type Choose whether to invite user by User ID or Username.

Organizations with a large number of users may experience long execution times when selecting Username. Instead, select User ID to reduce execution time.


Organizations with more than 10,000 Slack users should select User ID or Email.

Dropdown TRUE


Field Definition Type Required
User ID Unique identifier of the user you want to invite. This field appears when Field Type is set to User ID. String TRUE

Field Definition Type
Status Code

Result of the operation. The connector returns an HTTP status code that indicates whether the action taken by the card succeeded or failed. For example:

  • A 201 Created status code indicates success where a new resource was created.
  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.

For a full list of possible status codes, see HTTP status codes.
