Power BI Connector for Slack

Build 22.0.8389

UserGroups

Create, update, and query all User Groups for a Slack team.

Select

The connector uses the Slack API to process search criteria that refer to the IncludeDisabled column while other search criteria are processed client-side within the connector. For example, the following query is processed server side:

SELECT * FROM UserGroups WHERE IncludeDisabled = 'true'

Insert

Inserts are allowed only for paid workspaces and when you specify the Name of the user group. Other optional fields are Description, Handle, and PreferredChannelIds. For example:

INSERT INTO UserGroups (Name, PreferredChannelIds) VALUES ('newgroup', 'C5S8LAY0Y,C79J7PREU')

Update

You can update a user group by providing the Id and you can update the UserIds, Name, Description, PreferredChannelIds, and Handle columns. Updates are only allowed for paid workspaces.

UPDATE UserGroups SET PreferredChannelIds = 'C5S8LAY0Y,C79J7PREU', Name = 'newname' WHERE Id = 'U4826PEF'

Slack does not support the deletion of user groups.
