Slack App for Workfront Fusion

The Slack app for Workfront Fusion enables you to connect Workfront Fusion to your Slack account. After you enter your credentials, you can reuse that connection the next time you build a FLO using Slack. You can set up and save multiple connections and share them with your teammates.

NOTE This is available only for customers who have licensed Workfront Fusion. 

For more information about Workfront Fusion, see "Workfront Fusion."

Enabling the Slack Integration

The first time you add a Slack card to a FLO, you must set up a connection for that connector. 
To set up a connection with Slack:
  1. Click +New FLO in the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Search for Slack and click the Slack app.

  6. Click Create

  7. (Conditional) Sign in to Slack if you are not currently signed in. 
  8. In the dialog box, select the Slack account you want to connect to. 
  9. Click Authorize to give Workfront Fusion access to your Slack data. This allows Workfront Fusion to send messages on your behalf. You can reuse this connection any time you use Slack in a FLO. 

After you have set up a connection, you can use that connection again or set up a new one.

What You Can Do with the Slack Integration

There are multiple Events in Slack that can trigger FLOs:

  • New Message in Channel: Start FLO when there is a new message in a certain channel
  • New Message in Private Channel: Start FLO when there is a new message in your private Slack channel.
  • New Pinned Message: Start FLO when a message is pinned in a certain channel
  • Slash Command: Start FLO when someone sends a slash command to a custom bot. Use with "Respond to Command" action.

After a FLO is triggered, you can configure it to perform the following Actions in Slack: 

  • Archive Channel: Archive a channel with name or channel ID
  • Create Channel: Create a public or private slack channel
  • Custom API Call: Make an authenticated HTTP request to the Slack API
  • Invite User to Channel: Invite a user to a Slack channel
  • Join Channel: Join a public Slack channel
  • Leave Channel: Leave a public or private Slack channel
  • Read Message History: Get a collection of messages from a desired channel and time range
  • Read User: Read a user's information using their user ID, username, or email
  • Respond to Command - Delayed: Use with Slash Command event to respond to a slash command from a custom bot after a delay. This should be used if FLO runtime is greater than 3 seconds.
  • Respond to Command - Real Time: Use with Slash Command event to respond to a slash command in real time from a custom bot. Every Slash Command event needs a real time response in less than 3 seconds, although you can post follow-up messages with Respond to Command - Delayed.
  • Search Channels: Search for one or more channels matching certain criteria
  • Send Direct Message: Send a direct message by username or user ID
  • Send Message to Channel: Send a message to a channel
  • Send Slackbot Message: Send a message to a user's slackbot channel using their username
