Not getting webhook events for chat message sent

I have not been able to get any event notifications for chat messages for a day while other channel or meeting events are working fine.

This seems similar to another thread:

No error message, just no events being sent.

Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
OAuth account-level app with event subscriptions:
Chat Message Sent

And scopes added include:

Which Endpoint/s?

How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create an account level OAuth App
  2. Enable Event subscriptions
  3. Set up and save Chat Message Sent event subscription
  4. Add scopes listed above
  5. Install app (authorize)

Hi @hu-eo ,

I am going to check with my team to see if they are aware of an explanation for this instance.

Thanks so much,

Hi @hu-eo ,

Do you have “advanced encryption” enabled for the chat messages?

Thank you,

Yes, it looks like I do. Ergo, according to this:

I would not be able to receive chat events until it’s disabled?


It’s been a couple days since getting a reply, but can you confirm the assumption that “advanced encryption” enabled stops webhook events for chats?

Is there any plan to allow for the webhook events? We’re really more interested in the metadata of that event.

Hi @hu-eo thank you for your patience. Yes, advanced encryption can interfere with the webhook events for chats and is being reviewed for use cases like yours. You help emphasize this need this through #feature-requests and stay up to date with our changelog.

Thanks so much,
