Overview

The Reply activity uses the Slack chat.postMessage API to reply to a specific message (Message).

After sending the reply, the activity returns its properties in Message object (Reply) that you can use as input property variables in subsequent activities (e.g. Get Replies, Message.Text in Write Line, 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 Reply 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.
  7. Run the activity.
    • Your input property values are sent to the chat.postMessage API.
    • The API returns the Message value to your output property variable.
