SlackGo to https://api.slack.com/ If you are not connected yet, you will find the button 'Go to Slack' in the top right corner of the page.
There you can sign in to your workspace with your Slack credentials.
Now at the place where the button 'Go to Slack' was, should be the button 'Your Apps', click on it and you will get an overview of your apps.
When you click 'Create New App', you will be asked to give a name for your app and the workspace that you want to connect it to. This will forward you to the following page with the most important information. In case your app already exists, you can click the App in the list on the bottom (in this case TestApp).
Before you can install the application on your workspace you need to configure the redirect URLs and add the necessary scope. You can do this by clicking on 'Add features and functionality', different settings will drop down and if you select 'Permissions' you will get to the page 'OAuth & Permissions'.
When you assign redirect URLs, do not forget to click the 'Save URLs' button. Once one scope is defined, you can click the button 'Install App to Workspace'.
One thing about the Slack API is that the tokens do not get expired, so in case you want to force everyone to login again, you can click the red button 'Revoke Tokens' on the bottom of this page.
Now you have everything you need to start working with the TTMSFNCCloudSlack component.
