Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit new events on new Slack [interactivity events](https://api.slack.com/interactivity) sourced from [Block Kit interactive elements](https://api.slack.com/interactivity/components), [Slash commands](https://api.slack.com/interactivity/slash-commands), or [Shortcuts](https://api.slack.com/interactivity/shortcuts).
Version:0.0.10
Key:slack-new-interaction-event-received

New Interaction Events Overview

Slack messages can contain interactive elements like buttons, dropdowns, radio buttons, and more. This source subscribes to interactive events, like when a button is clicked in a message.

Example of a Slack button

Then this source will be triggered when you or another Slack user in your workspace clicks a button, selects an option or fills out a form.

Example feed of interaction events coming from Slack

With this trigger, you can build workflows that perform some work with other APIs or services, and then reply back to the original message.

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