On this page it says to get the authentication token for Slack's API from

I can't see how to do that? Does it mean an OAuth2 token?

Many thanks,

    Hi Barry,

    It's a "bare" token under Authentication section on this page:

    Will fix docs shortly.

    Thanks, I see that now and seems to work fine.

    I have a second question though: I am seeing newer builds under "History"
    but "Latest Build" shows one from a few hours ago - no matter how I try and
    access the actual latest (to see build errors). Is there an issue?

    Well, "Last build" currently displays either running build or first queued, it's not like top of queue.

    Ah, I see.

    So, I wonder why the I cannot see the build output from historic builds?
    Could it be because they have the same version number? Is it possible to
    view the build output from a failed build (that has the same version umber
    as the previous)?

    The same version number is not good. Are you setting it from build script or build number is just not incrementing?

    I don't think it incremented (not setting it in build script). However, I
    also clicked the "Re Build Commit" button and so ended up with 3 builds
    with the same number and the middle one was the latest commit. While that
    happened I got failed build notifications to Slack. I incremented the
    number manually via Settings - and pushed an update - all seemed to go well
    this time (I also received duplicate notifications, this time with success

    A further push after that has incremented correctly and built successfully.

    Not sure if that helps(!), I am going to assume the issue was with "Re
    Build Commit" and just avoid using that if I can.

    Many thanks,

    Interesting, will take a look. Maybe a glitch but worth checking.
