How to Respond into a Thread

Describe the issue/error/question

I currently have a Workflow which is starting from a Bot Message in a Slack Channel.
From that Message, I’m Creating a Jira Ticket.

Cherry on the Cake would now be, that i reply by opening a Thread from the starting Message with the Ticket number.

I know how Threading in Slack works but I’m not sore if the Node can do that.

I did not really see it so my Question is, can the node Reply to a Message in a Thread if not, I have to use an HTTP node right?

Every post is very much appreciated

BR and have a great day

Hey @Benjamin_Exner,

I wasn’t sure so I just took a look and when you use Message > Post there is an option for “Make Reply” where you can put the ts value of the message you want to reply to. Maybe this is what you are looking for.
