Slack type

Our Slack credential is a very easy way to gain basic access to your Slack workspace, for simple messaging use cases.

Once you create a Slack credential, you’ll be taken to Slack to authorize Tines:

Once you’ve authorized, you’re done. You can then use the credential like any other, for example as CREDENTIAL.slack as a bearer token in the Authorization header. (See an example in our Story Library.)

If you need more complex capabilities, for example building an interactive bot, you’ll need to manually configure an OAuth 2.0 credential. Follow our guide on manually configuring Slack OAuth credentials in Tines for complete control.
