TDV Adapter for Slack

Build 21.0.8137

Files

Query and delete team files.

Select

The adapter will use the Slack API to filter by search criteria that refer to the Id, Created, UserId, Types, SpecificChannel, or SearchTerm columns. All columns support server-side processing for the = operator, and the Created column also supports server-side processing for the >, >=, <, <= operators.

The adapter processes other search criteria client-side within the adapter.

For example, the following queries are processed server side:

SELECT * FROM Files WHERE Created > '2017-01-01' AND UserId = 'U2345NDS' AND SpecificChannel = 'D71R6CSR1'

You can also filter files by querying the files' contents: Set the SearchTerm pseudocolumn in the criteria. All files containing the queried word will be retrieved. For example:

SELECT * FROM Files WHERE SearchTerm = 'text'

Insert

Slack does not allow inserting new files.

Update

Slack does not allow updating files.

Delete

Files can be deleted by providing the Id of the file.

DELETE FROM Files WHERE Id = 'F71R6DRR1'
