ODBC Driver for Slack

Build 23.0.8839


Create, update, and query the available channels in Slack.


The 本製品 will use the Slack API to process search criteria that refer to the Id, IsArchived, IsPublic, IsGroup, IsDirectMessage, and IsMultipartyDirectMessage columns. These columns support server-side processing for the = operator. The 本製品 processes other filters client-side within the 本製品.

For example, the following queries are processed server side by the Slack APIs:

SELECT * FROM Channels WHERE IsPublic = false AND IsGroup = false AND IsArchived = true
 SELECT * FROM Channels WHERE Id = 'D71R6CSR1' 


The Name column is the minimum requirement for an insert. Name and IsPublic are the only columns that can be set on an insert.

INSERT INTO Channels (Name, IsPublic) VALUES ('initialname', true)


The Channels table allows updates for columns Name, Purpose, and Topic when Id is specified.

UPDATE Channels SET Topic = 'A Topic Text', Purpose = 'A Purpose Text', Name = 'updatedname' WHERE Id = 'D71R6CSR1' 


Slack does not allow Channels to be deleted.
