ODBC Driver for Slack

Build 22.0.8462


Create, update, delete, and query the available messages in Slack.


The Messages table requires ChannelId or SearchTerm in the WHERE clause. The driver also uses the Slack API to process search criteria that refer to the Id column. The ChannelId, SearchTerm, and Id columns support server-side processing for the = operator. The driver processes other search criteria client-side within the driver.

SELECT * FROM Messages WHERE ChannelId = 'D71R6CSR1'
SELECT * FROM Messages WHERE SearchTerm = 'text' 
You can turn off the client-side execution of the query by setting SupportEnhancedSQL to false in which case any search criteria that refers to other columns will cause an error.


Slack allows inserts only when ChannelId and Text are specified.

INSERT INTO Messages (ChannelId, Text) VALUES ('D71R6CSR1', 'This is a message')


The Messages table allows updates only for the Text field. Specify ChannelId and Id.

UPDATE Messages Set Text = 'Updated message' WHERE ChannelId = 'D71R6CSR1' AND Id = '1234567890.123456' 


Messages can be deleted by providing the ChannelId and the Id of the message.

DELETE FROM Messages WHERE ChannelId = 'D71R6CSR1' AND Id = '1234567890.123456'
