Slack threads and chat integration plugin transcripts

(David Taylor) #21

For ‘Private Channels’ you need to add the groups:history scope. For “Direct Messages” you need to add the im:history scope. You will need to ‘reinstall’ the app for changes to scopes to take effect (Slack’s UI should have prompted you to do this).

Are you seeing anything at /logs when the errors occur?

I tried adding these scopes, and reinstalling:


Still getting that 422, but don’t see anything obvious in the Discourse logs in the admin panel (this is a hosted instance, so I don’t have direct access to other logs).

I used the /discourse post command from a public channel to great effect… but threads are now more common in many channels than main channel conversations, so still hopeful that some day this will work in a thread…

Update: w00t! just tried it again and it worked!

/discourse post

as did:

/discourse post thread

Another update: I was also able to post a thread from a private channel. :tada:

To close the loop here - @mbugowski kindly contributed a pull request to fix the issue:
