scope_denied event

Developer preview has ended

This feature was exclusive to our workspace apps developer preview. The preview has now ended, but fan-favorite features such as token rotation and the Conversations API will become available to classic Slack apps over the coming months.

OAuth scopes were denied to your app

Compatibility: Events API


When subscribed and your workspace app is denied a new scope you requested, we'll dispatch this event to tell you about it.

{
    "token": "verification-token",
    "team_id": "T1DD3JH3K",
    "api_app_id": "A7449NRUL",
    "event": {
        "type": "scope_denied",
        "scopes": [
            "files:read",
            "files:write",
            "chat:write"
        ],
        "trigger_id": "241582872337.47445629121.string"
    },
    "type": "event_callback",
    "authed_teams": [],
    "event_id": "Ev74V2J98E",
    "event_time": 1505519097
}

The inner event describes an array of scopes you requested but were denied access to. It includes a trigger_id you may use with dialog.open or Permissions API requests.
