does anyone know of a hacky way to make multiple Slack channels private? It doesn’t look like Slack has an open api for this
Isn’t there a CSV thing you can do?
how many channels are you talking, here?
(also, did someone mess up or is there a culture shift happening?)
like a csv bulk update? I know you can import a csv to create channels, but I’m not aware of updating existing channels. Its about 75 channels, so kinda tedious to do manually. Noone messed up, there’s just been some concerns about public channels for this workspace 🙂
still, 75 channels changing to private is a lot haha. Slack would be like . I thought there was a bulk update. maybe i saw one bc I’m on Grid? 🤔
@mikestone-bettercloud maybe you know some magic here
so looks like there is no documented endpoint to make a public channel private
but there is an undocumented endpoint…..
yah, i was hoping someone might have some hacky way to do this
looks like this:
and it accepts a channel
so…..you can probably hack it together with Postman if you really need to
or some other script
awesome, i’ll mess around with this. thanks mike!!
