View information about a user’s identity


Supported token types

This scope allows a token to identify itself and utilize the Web API.

For legacy Classic Slack apps, it was issued to all user tokens. User tokens issued by apps that have migrated to the modern Slack app model will also continue to include this scope.

For modern Slack apps, the permissions this scope grants is inherent to the user token itself.

All tokens in the Slack Platform can identify themselves using the auth.test API method. In Classic Slack apps, this ability is made explicit with the identify scope. In modern Slack apps, the scope is implicit and unnamed unless as part of an app that has migrated from a Classic Slack App.
