  • Token from the App-level Token that we created SLACKBOT_APP_TOKEN=xapp-xxx

copy the Bearer Auth token from ChatGPT website

put into .env file CHATGPT_AUTH_TOKEN=<copied token value>

  • you can use /set-chatgpt-token to setup the token for update, e.g. you may need reset the thread, and don’t want to reset the bot server.
