Orchestration - Get team_id

  • 26 November 2021

I’m currently setting up a number of automation workflows with orchestration to automate some of our more repetitive requests. The first one I’m trying to tackle is creation of new Teams, with custom channels, members and owners. All is well so far with creating the Team itself, but we’re having trouble creating channels for the newly created Team. Creating the channel relies on the team_id, but from what I can see, there’s no way to get or call this variable. The ‘Get Team’ function relies on team_id as the input, but interesting also gives the id as the output. Does anyone know how I can call the team_id to use this as the input for ‘Create Channel’?

Hi @dt_csac,

We have deployed this enhancement request. We now display the Team ID in the Create Team response. You can now Create a Team, and read the response using a JSON parser node to fetch the Team ID and use it in subsequent workflow action nodes. I hope you received our response on the support ticket as well.
