Slack API

Slack is a platform for team communication: everything in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. Offering instant messaging, document sharing and knowledge search for modern teams.

Use the Slack Connector

Add the slack connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the slack API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const slack = this.connector(
'slack', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield slack.get('path_to_API');
yield slack.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Slack API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your Slack API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed Slack API calls.

Integrate Slack into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Slack API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates slack API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// slack authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const slack = this.connector(
    'slack',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield slack.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// slack authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const slack = this.connector(
    'slack',

  this.slack.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");
