UiPath Activities

The UiPath Activities Guide

Get Replies

Overview

The Get Replies activity uses the Slack conversations.replies API to retrieve the replies associated with a specific message (Message).

After retrieving the replies, the activity returns the properties in a Message[] object (Replies) that you can use as input property variables in subsequent activities (e.g., Message(0).Files in Download File, etc.).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Slack Scope activity to your project.
  3. Complete one of the following two options (A or B):
    A. Add the Search activity inside the Slack Scope activity.
    B. Add the Get Messages activity inside the Slack Scope activity.
  4. Add the Get Replies activity after the Search or Get Messages activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a Message[] variable for your Output property.
