im_created event

A DM was created

Compatibility: RTM Events API

Expected scopes:

{
    "type": "im_created",
    "user": "U024BE7LH",
    "channel": {...}
}

The im_created event is sent to all connections for a user when a new direct message channel is created that they are a member of.

This message lets the client know that a channel has been created, but the client should show no changes based on this, just update its internal list of IM channels. Usually this event is followed by an im_open event.
