This package provides Slack OAuth 2.0 support for the PHP League's OAuth 2.0 Client.


To install, use composer:

composer require bramdevries/oauth2-slack


Usage is the same as The League's OAuth client, using \League\OAuth2\Client\Provider\Slack as the provider.

Authorization Code Flow

$provider = new League\OAuth2\Client\Provider\Slack([
    'clientId'          => '{slack-client-id}',
    'clientSecret'      => '{slack-client-secret}',
    'redirectUri'       => '',

if (!isset($_GET['code'])) {

    // If we don't have an authorization code then get one
    $authUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl();
    $_SESSION['oauth2state'] = $provider->getState();
    header('Location: '.$authUrl);

// Check given state against previously stored one to mitigate CSRF attack
} elseif (empty($_GET['state']) || ($_GET['state'] !== $_SESSION['oauth2state'])) {

    exit('Invalid state');

} else {

    // Try to get an access token (using the authorization code grant)
    $token = $provider->getAccessToken('authorization_code', [
        'code' => $_GET['code']

    // Optional: Now you have a token you can look up a users profile data
    try {

        // We got an access token, let's now get the user's details
        $user = $provider->getResourceOwner($token);

        // Use these details to create a new profile
        printf('Hello %s!', $user->getNickname());

    } catch (Exception $e) {

        // Failed to get user details
        exit('Oh dear...');

    // Use this to interact with an API on the users behalf
    echo $token->getToken();

Managing Scopes

When creating your Slack authorization URL, you can specify the state and scopes your application may authorize.

$options = [
    'scope' => ['identify','read','post'] // array or string

$authorizationUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl($options);

If neither are defined, the provider will utilize internal defaults.

At the time of authoring this documentation, the following scopes are available.

  • identify
  • read
  • post
  • client
  • admin
