If you need to figure out how to access the necessary credentials, head here for a detailed walk through.
Let's first select the source from the list of taps in hotglue for this flow.
Now that we have selected Slack as a source, we are going to put in the OAuth Client ID and the OAuth Client Secret. If you don't know where to get these credentials, you can learn where to find them here.
Once you've entered your OAuth credentials, click the Save button.
You will then be asked to connect your own testing Slack credentials. Go ahead and fill these in and click Save.
And that's it! You have successfully enabled the Slack integration.
You now have added Slack as a data source for your flow. Next, you need to configure the mapping for your Slack data. Click on the field map button to get started.
You can now select the data you want to pull from Slack. To edit the fields for an object you want to pull, use the corresponding gear icon.
If you're using the messages stream, you must make sure that the Slack bot is inside the channels you wish to access! Failure to do so will cause no messages to come through. You can learn how to add your Slack bot to a channel below.
You can now select specific fields identified in each object to map in the Field Editor. Once you have selected which fields you want, you click confirm.
Once you are done mapping any of the fields you want, you click save, and you have finished configuring your mappings!
The first thing that you need to do to get your Slack OAuth credentials is to head to the Slack API dashboard. If you do not have a Slack account, you will be prompted to create one.
Once you're on the Slack API dashboard, select create new app
In the popup, select Create from scratch
Now give your app a name, and pick a Slack workspace to test with, then click Create App
From the next screen, select OAuth & Permissions
On the OAuth & Permissions page, scroll down to the Redirect URLs section, and add
https://hotglue.xyz/callback as a valid URL and click Save URLs
Now scroll down to the Scopes section. For hotglue to work, you must grant the following scopes:
Finally, click on Basic Information in the top left.
Now scroll down to the App Credentials section. Here you will be able to access the necessary client id and client secret.
You can now use these credentials in hotglue to configure your Slack integration!
Once a user has authenticated via OAuth with your Slack app, your bot will be available in the apps list of their Slack workspace. But before the bot can read any messages, you must first add them in the channels you wish to get messages from.
Go to channel details in Slack and click on Integrations
From here, click on Add an App, and select your app in the list
