3a. To integrate an existing Slack channel, select the Slack channel you want to configure as a Channel Destination on the dropdown list.


Note: Due to Slack API limitations, you might not be able to see all the Slack channels in your workspace.

If you can’t see the channel you want to configure on the list, you can still set it as a Channel Destination once you provide its Slack Channel ID.

To get the Slack Channel ID:

1. Go to your Slack workspace.
