Slack March 2021 Update

📘

You must update your Slack settings by 24th March 2021

An update to the Marketplace framework will be released on 24th March. Redirect URIs must be updated before this date to ensure the ongoing service of your Slack widget. Please follow the instructions below.

With the update to Marketplace that is set to be released in March 2021, existing users will need to update the Redirect URLs associated with your Slack Marketplace application to ensure the consistent functioning of this integration.

These changes can be made in advance of the Marketplace update, and we advise that these changes are made as soon as possible to avoid any disruption to your Slack integration.

Step-by-step guidance for updating your Slack application:

  1. Navigate to https://api.slack.com/apps.
  1. Select the Slack app you previously created for Interact.
  2. You will then be taken to a screen with a left-hand menu with the headings Settings and Features. Click on OAuth & Permissions under the Features heading.
  1. Under the Redirect URLs heading on the OAuth & Permissions screen, click on the Add New Redirect URL Button.
  1. In the text box that appears, enter the following URL: https://{YourIntranetDomain}/marketplace/slack/account/sign-in/oauth2 and click Add.
  1. Once the new Redirect URL has been added, any Slack Channel Widgets on your intranet will automatically update when the March 2021 Marketplace update is released – leading to zero downtime for your organization.
