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.

The basics

  • Third-party apps and Slack-built apps 
    You can remove them entirely from your workspace, or disable individual authorizations (third-party apps) or configurations (Slack-built apps).
  • 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 custom integrations. If you don't see the option to remove something, contact a Workspace Owner or Admin for help.

Note: You can remove an app or custom integration from a private channel only if you're the person who added it.
