  2) Adding required Scopes.

You will have to grant your Slack app the required scopes in order for you to publish messages either as a user or as an app or bot. Sending messages to a channel requires channel:write, and viewing basic information of a channel requires the channel:read scope. Sending DM’s requires im:write, while sending on a user’s behalf requires the chat:write scope.

  • Go to settings of your app and navigate to OAuth and permissions.
  • Scroll down to the Scopes section and pick the required scope from the drop down menu.
  • Click Save changes.
  • Now scroll to the top of the page and click on Install to workspace.
  • Now you see a screen requesting permission to grant access, selecting the original workspace will authorize your app.
