Get a Slack bot token

When you get a Slack bot token, you also install the Zenoss Slack app if it is not already installed.


You may need Slack administrative privileges to perform this procedure.

Follow these steps:

  1. In the Credentials area, click GET TOKEN.

  2. Log in to your Slack workspace.

  3. Review the permissions that the Zenoss Slack app requires, and then click Allow or Cancel.

If you are unable to get a token, please contact Zenoss Support.
