Remove apps and custom integrations from your workspace

Removing an app or custom integration differs depending on who built it and how it's configured. We’ve put together this handy guide to walk you through everything you need to know.

Note: If a Workspace Owner has enabled the approved apps setting for your workspace, only Workspace Owners and members with permission to manage apps will be able to remove them.

The basics

  • Third-party apps, Slack-built apps, and workspace token apps
    You can remove them entirely from your workspace, or disable individual authorizations (third-party apps) or configurations (Slack-built apps). Workspace token apps were built on a legacy framework, so removing them from Slack works a bit differently.
  • Custom integrations
    You can disable a custom integration for your entire workspace, or delete individual configurations.
  • Permissions
    Workspace Owners can choose to restrict who can manage apps and integrations. If you don't see the option to remove an app or integration, contact a Workspace Owner for help.
