Finding your SLACK_TOKEN

Slack recently changed how users interact with their API. To find your SLACK_TOKEN, follow these instructions:

  2. Once the app has been created, click on the "OAuth & Permissions" link on the sidebar

  3. Scroll down to "Scopes" and set the following permissions:

  • dnd:write
  • users.write
  • users.profile:write
  1. Copy the OAuth Access Token at the top of the page, and use it as your SLACK_TOKEN
