Frequently Asked Questions¶
"This app responded with Status Code 404" error returned while picking a filter from a slash command¶
If a 404 error is being returned while trying to use a slash command that allows for filtering, there is most likely a typo within the Interactivity Request URL for your application.
- Navigate to https://api.slack.com/apps and select your Nautobot ChatOps application that is currently in development
- Under Features, navigate to "Interactivity & Shortcuts"
- Under Interactivity, confirm that the Request URL is of the format:
https://<server>/api/plugins/chatops/slack/interaction/(Note the trailing slash)
Can I interact with Nautobot within a Slack thread?¶
Slack does not currently support using slash commands within a conversation thread. Nautobot can be mentioned in a thread and will parse the text after the bot's name for a command.
For example, if you want to run the slash command
/nautobot get-devices site site-a, the equivalent bot mention command would be (assuming your bot name is
@nautobot nautobot get-devices site site-a.
The Chat Commands do not allow me to select locations/devices/interfaces/etc¶
