Jitterbit Harmony Slack Connector

Overview

The Jitterbit Harmony Slack connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Connectivity tab

This connector is used to first configure a Slack connection, establishing access to the Slack application, and then used to configure a Slack activity associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation.

Note

If you used the Slack connector with projects prior to the Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio 10.23 release, you must reconfigure your connection as it no longer uses a webhook URL to connect and authenticate.

The Slack connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later.

Together, a specific Slack connection and its activities are referred to as a Slack endpoint. Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available from the Endpoints filter:

Note

Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.slack" level="DEBUG"/>

Creating a Slack App

To use this connector with a Slack instance, you must create a Slack app and add the required scopes (as described in Slack Prerequisites).

Next Steps

After configuring a Slack connection, you can configure one or more Slack activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation. For more information, see these pages:

  • Get: Retrieves table or view data from a Slack connection and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
  • Post: Posts an object into a Slack channel and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
  • Search: Finds messages at a Slack endpoint and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
  • Chat: Places chat information into a Slack endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
  • Files: Places file information into a Slack endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
  • Conversations: Posts an object into a Slack endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
  • Users: Places user information into a Slack endpoint and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
