Slack Overview

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. When you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions, or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It just makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

Here are some examples of automations you can build with Pipedream on Slack:

  • Automate posting updates to your team channel
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • Build a custom dashboard to track your team's progress
  • Create a bot to handle scheduling and meeting requests
  • And much more!

Should I use the Slack or Slack Bot app on Pipedream?

The Slack app is the easiest and most convienent option to get started. It installs the official Pipedream bot into your Slack workspace with just a few clicks.

However, if you'd like to use your own bot registered with the Slack API, you can use the Slack Bot app instead.

The Slack Bot requires a bot token to allow your Pipedream workflows to authenticate as your bot. The extra set up steps allow you to list your custom bot on the Slack Marketplace, or install the bot on other workspaces as your bot's name instead of as Pipedream.

Trigger Authentication

Slack uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Slack account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Slack and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Slack API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
