Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the early version of the new website
We would very much like to receive any feedback on the new site, please join the discussion on the Camel user mailing list.

Slack Component

Available as of Camel 2.16

The slack component allows you to connect to an instance of Slack and delivers a message contained in the message body via a pre established Slack incoming webhook.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->

URI format

To send a message to a channel.


To send a direct message to a slackuser.







This is the username that the bot will have when sending messages to a channel or user.

iconUrlThe avatar that the component will use when sending message to a channel or user.iconUrl=
iconEmojiUse a Slack emoji as an avatariconEmoji=:camel:



The SlackComponent with XML must be configured as a Spring or Blueprint bean that contains the incoming webhook url for the integration as a parameter.

<bean id="slack" class="org.apache.camel.component.slack.SlackComponent">
    <property name="webhookUrl" value=""/>


For Java you can configure this using Java code.


A CamelContext with Blueprint could be as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<blueprint xmlns="" default-activation="lazy">

    <bean id="slack" class="org.apache.camel.component.slack.SlackComponent">
        <property name="webhookUrl" value=""/>

    <camelContext xmlns="">
            <from uri="direct:test"/>
            <to uri="slack:#channel?iconEmoji=:camel:&amp;username=CamelTest"/>
