Building a slack connector

Hey guys 🙂
i am about to build my very first connector in power automate for a trigger, but i do not really know where to start.

The goal of the final workflow: Posting a new message in teams after a message in a slack channel is sent. 

For now my problem is, accordingly to the slack docs (Using Slack APIs | Slack) it seems to be necessary to create an app. But it is already possible to set a connection to slack channel without an app in power automate. That´s why i am a bit confused 😕 
Maybe you can help me by giving me an instruction of what are the best steps that i have to to create this connector.  

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi there,

 

We currently have a Slack Connector. If you haven't done so already, please take a look at this documentation covering creating triggers for a custom connector and let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

Hi 🙂
I do know, that there is a slack connector, but there is just one trigger provided. I need one for a message sent in a channel. Thats why i want to create a new connector with a new trigger.

 

I found out a few things about slack too. If i create a new flow (in power automate) with the existing slack connector there will be created an app in slack doing all the actions, that are available (e.g. posting a message in a channel). So i have to create a new app. With this app i am able to subscribe to an event happining in my slack channel. 

 

 So if i want to create a trigger in power automate i have to set a connection to this app in slack. But i do not know where i get the url of the app from. 

Thanks for your support
