Message Metadata

Spark and build event-driven integrations

Messages in Slack can be infused with structured metadata about events that happen in your services.

Slack apps and workflows can react to those events, spurring helpful automations in Slack with your service at the center.

Communicate with metadata to share events

Send messages with metadata when events happen. Use those events to alert and inform other own Slack apps and integrations.

Connect metadata to event-driven automations

Pass metadata throughout your workflows via functions. Invoke workflows by using triggers listening for metadata.
