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.
iconUrl The avatar that the component will use when sending message to a channel or user. iconUrl=
iconEmoji Use a Slack emoji as an avatar iconEmoji=: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"/>
