Permission problems on Slack API

Hello Zapier team !


I am trying to use Beta feature of Slack integration to perform API requests with Slack API. The thing I try to do is to add a reaction to a specific message.

However, when running the API call, I get the error from Slack that I don't have the permission to create a reaction to a message. I guess this permission is not asked when connecting to Slack by Zapier.

Is there anyway I could add this permission manually? Any plan of adding this feature inside the core plateform?


Thank you !

Hi @moba-tech 


Welcome to Zapier Community ! 


So in such cases you will need to use a Webhook instead of the App Extension or API Request, I ran into a similar problem with Webflow and this is the way I went.
