When connecting your Slack workspace to Connect iPaaS, Slack will use OAuth to authorize the connection. By linking your Slack account with Connect iPaaS, you will authorize RoboMQ to have a delegated access on your behalf. RoboMQ needs the following permissions on your account to provide a seamless integration experience:
|Users||Get the list of users in workspace|
|Chat||Post as a bot or as a user|
|Channels||Get the list of channels to receive message notifications|
For more information on Slack's scopes and permissions, please refer to their documentation and learn more about what is exactly used by Connect iPaaS.
Create a Connection¶
To link your Slack account, you have to first specify a name for your Slack connection under
Connection Name, there will be an auto-filled in name but feel free to name it something more meaningful. Once you have picked out a name, click on the
Link Account button.
When you click on the
Link Account button, you will be redirected to the Slack Account Authorization screen. Here you can see what permissions Connect iPaaS will be requesting.
By allowing access, you are authorizing RoboMQ to access your Slack account, with the permissions as shown in the authorization page.
