Permission Scopes

The app needs several permission scopes to function. Obviously the app needs to be able to set up a slash command and write messsages to users:

  • Add commands (commands)
  • Send messages as lunchorder (chat:write:bot)

Maybe not as obvious are these scopes:

  • Access information about your channels (channels:read, groups:read)
  • Access your team’s profile information (users:read)

They are used when you execute the /lunchorder start command in a channel to first retreive a list of all users in that channel (channels:read, groups:read) and then to find out which of those users are currently online (users:read).
