I want to completely remove a bot I created on Slack. I can disable it but not completely remove it. Any ideas?

  1. Go to https://yourteamname.slack.com/apps/manage

  2. Select the bot which you want to remove

  3. Select revoke permissions and authorizations to this app

  4. Select Remove the bot

Currently not possible, unfortunately. But we are working changes that will allow it. Stay tuned!

    Any new developments? Has this feature been added in the last 17 months? Jan 6, 2017 at 18:36

I have removed applications from the page https://[yourteamname].slack.com/apps/manage.

Change [yourteamname] to your team name.

Though you cannot take any action on the bots in the my.slack.com/admin page, I was able to go to the "apps" section and all of my bots showed up there. Then I clicked on the bot I wanted to remove and hit "remove app" at the bottom of my screen. Not the greatest implementation but at least it appears there is a solution!

I am also the team owner, so you likely need to be that to remove a bot
