file_created event

A file was created

Compatibility: RTM Events API

Expected scopes:

	"type": "file_created",
	"file_id": "F2147483862",
	"file": {
		"id": "F2147483862"

The file_created event is sent to all connected clients for a user when that user uploads a file to Slack. The file property includes the file ID, as well as a top-level file_id. To obtain additional information about the file, use the API method.

When a file is shared with other members of the workspace (which can happen at upload time) a file_shared event will also be sent.
