Retrieve Slack Team Authorization Tokens via API

Flow XO provides an HTTP API endpoint that you can use to retrieve information about team authorizations for your slack bots.


You must authorize all calls to the Flow XO API using an Authorization header in your HTTP request. The Flow XO API uses 'bearer token' authorization, so you will need to precede your API key with the word 'Bearer', like so:

Authorization: Bearer yOuRApIKeyGoEsHeRe

Note that if you are using Postman, and you use the Bearer Token feature, you will not need to manually add the word 'Bearer' as postman will do that for you:


To use the Flow XO API, you will need to send HTTP requests to the following endpoint. The last part of the URL will depend on the method you are calling, but the base address is:


Listing teams

You can retrieve a list of teams who have authorized your bot

The result will look like this:
        "_id": "xxxx",
        "name": "Bot",
        "account": "T014ARZTBQS"
        "_id": "yyy",
        "name": "Another Bot",
        "account": "T019ARRTBQS"
        "_id": "zzz",
        "name": "Another Bot",
        "account": "T020ZRZRBQM"
Here's what the request would be using cURL:
curl --location --request GET '' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer YOURAPIKEY'

Retrieving metadata about a team (including the authorization token you can use to access the Slack API on behalf of the team)

Once you have the "account" code of the team you want to get more information on, you can get full information about the authorization for that team.
