November product updates will take effect on November 9, 2018.
Slack Integration needs to first be enabled by a Kintone Administrator from Users & Systems Administration. For more details, see Allowing the User of Integrations. Once enabled, a Slack Integration link will appear in the App Settings tab of an app, as shown below.
Kintone Administrators will be able to authenticate API requests using OAuth 2.0.
Note: Only for Confidential Client, Authorization Code Grant Types
Before OAuth was added, using the REST API required Basic Authentication of login and password or the use of an API TOKEN. However, these methods can have some critical issues, for example, the password is stored in the integration program which can cause a security risk, or some functions will not work because user's rights have been limited. When using OAuth clients, there is no need to share passwords with the integration program.
OAuth Client Registration:1. Click the gear wheel and select Users & System Administration.
3. Click Add OAuth Client, fill out the required fields, and click Save.
Kintone desktop has a Field Group function that groups multiple fields together, under a field group header, which can be collapsed or expanded. This update adds the functionality to the mobile app.
