Slack Connector

Version 2

 

Intro

Slack is a proprietary business communication platform. Slack offers many IRC-style features, including persistent chat rooms (channels) organized by topic, private groups, and direct messaging. Its workspaces allow you to organize communications by channels for group discussions and allows for private messages to share information, files, and more all in one place. Slack is the collaboration hub that brings the right people, information, and tools together to get work done. Use Domo’s Slack Connector to fetch the data about your remote teams’ interactions to increase productivity, irrespective of the physical locations.

To learn more about the (third-party tool) API, visit their page (API URL).

You connect to your (third-party tool) account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the (third-party tool) connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your (third-party tool) account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • (credential type)

  • (credential type)

(To obtain credentials, do this.)

Connecting to Your (Third-party Tool) Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the (third-party tool) Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

The Domo (third-party tool) connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing (third-party tool) accounts in Domo) to open the (third-party tool) OAuth screen where you can enter your (third-party tool) (credentials). Once you have entered valid (third-party tool) credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new (third-party tool) DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into (third-party connector) when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of (third-party connector).

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
