You can use this account type to connect Slack Snaps with data sources that use Dynamic OAuth2 accounts using either a Bot User Token (Bot Token) or a User Token.
See Start building Slack apps for details about creating an app. Once you install the app in your workspace, you can find these tokens in the https://api.slack.com/apps/<appid>/oauth? page, where <appid> is your application ID, which is populated in the browser's address bar after .
- Bot Tokens do not work with the Search, Channel Operations, and Workspace Operations Snaps.
- User Tokens can perform all actions on individual workspaces, but the Enterprise Grid-based operations require User Tokens of a Slack Enterprise Admin or Owner.
You can create a Slack Dynamic OAuth2 account for a Bot User or a generic user.
|Parameter||Data Type||Description||Default Value||Example |
Required. Specify a unique label for the account.
Required. Copy the value in Bot User OAuth Access Token or OAuth Access Token from the OAuth & Permissions section https://api.slack.com/apps/<App_ID>/oauth? and paste it into this field. <App_ID> corresponds to the Slack App you created for your Slack workspace.
Updating Scopes for your app
When you update the list of Scopes for your Slack OAuth Tokens & Redirect URLs section of the app, you Re-install app to ensure that the latest set of scopes take effect.
By default, Slack tokens do not expire. If you have an Enterprise Admin account, you can set an expiry duration for your app's user token.
See Revoke All OAuth Tokens to ur OAuth tokens, if required.

Configuring Redirect URLs for your app
While creating the Slack app, you must configure a Redirect (callback) URL for Slack to verify and authorize the communication between the app and your SnapLogic environment.
- Open https://api.slack.com/apps/<app_ID>/oauth? in your browser, where <app_ID> is the 11-character alphanumeric identifier (starting with 'A') for your Slack app.
For example, https://api.slack.com/apps/A01AYUSRU5V/oauth? . You must log in to the site if you do not have a valid session running beforehand.
- In the left navigation, navigate to Features > OAuth & Permissions, and then scroll down to the Redirect URLs section.
- Click Add New Redirect URL.
Enter the redirect URL in the following format: https://<SnapLogic_pod_name>/api/1/rest/admin/oauth2callback/slack, where <SnapLogic_pod_name> corresponds to the domain of your SnapLogic environment such as elastic.snaplogic.com.
Slack app with REST Snap Pack
If you intend to use your Slack app with the REST Snap Pack, add the Redirect URL: https://<SnapLogic_pod_name>/api/1/rest/admin/oauth2callback/rest in addition to the slack Redirect URL that you added in Step 4.
Click Add, and click Save URLs.
Revoke All OAuth Tokens
You can revoke all the OAuth tokens that you generated for your app if you want to revoke the various access permissions provided to your aprs.
- Open https://api.slack.com/apps/<YOURAPPID>/oauth? in your browser, or select OAuth & Permissions from your app's Features section from the left navigation.
- Scroll down to the Revoke All OAuth Tokens section, and click Revoke Tokens.
. You must repeat the Token Generation process if you want to generate new tokens.
You have entered an incorrect token.
