Configuring Slack Accounts

Overview

You must create a Slack app and corresponding Slack accounts to connect to the data sources that you want to use in your Pipelines. You can configure your Slack accounts in SnapLogic using either the Designer or the Manager.

Configuring Slack Accounts Using SnapLogic Designer

Drag a Slack Snap to the Canvas, and click the Snap to open its settings. Click the Account tab. You can now either use an existing account or create a new one.

Selecting an existing account

SnapLogic organizes and displays all accounts to which you have access, sorting them by account type and location. To select an existing account:

  1. In the Account tab, click the  icon to view the accounts to which you have access, and select the account that you want to use.

  2. Click .

Creating an account

  1. In the Account tab, click Add Account below the Account Reference field.

  2. Select the Location where you want to create the account, select the Account Type, and click ContinueThe Add Account dialog window associated with the account type appears.


  3. Enter the required account details. For detailed guidance on how to provide information required for each account type, see the following articles:

    Enter additional information about this account in the Notes field of the Info tab. This will help you—and other users—understand the purpose of the account, especially if there are multiple accounts of the same type.

  4. Click Validate to verify the account, if the account type supports validation.

  5. Click Apply to complete configuring the Slack account.

Configuring Slack Accounts Using SnapLogic Manager

You can use the Manager to create accounts without associating them immediately with Pipelines.

Accounts in SnapLogic are associated with projects. You can use accounts created in other projects only if you have at least Read access to them.

  1. In the left pane, browse to the project in which you want to create the account, and click Account Slack, followed by the appropriate account type. The Create Account dialog associated with the selected account type appears. 


  2. Repeat the steps numbered 3 through 5 in the Creating an account section.


Avoid updating account credentials while Pipelines using that account are executing. Doing so may lead to unexpected results, including your account getting locked.
