Issues setting up custom Slack API

Hi Bubble Community,

I’m trying to set up a connection to the Slack API via the Bubble API Plugin (The Slack plugin doesn’t allow me to do what I’m trying to do…) but I can’t get it to work correctly.

The problem is mainly the “User ID Key Path” field when I use “ok” as shown in the screenshot the authentication goes through but obviously the account that is created doesn’t contain the right credentials.

If I use anything else like “ID” the authentication fails with the following message even though there is clearly an ID part in the response JSON…

Tried everything: _id, ID, authed_user.id… nothing works. Any help would be massively appreciated.

Cheers

@emmanuel @vivienne is there an issue with the API connector parsing the Slack JSON? How did you guys set up the User ID path for the Slack API plugin?

@contact.aaron.alter Hi! Did you manage to get user id? How did you solve it? 'cause I’m having the same problem… “service did not return an ID for this user” and authed_user.id isn’t working :frowning:
