How to make a bot respond/react to an incoming webhook message in slack?


I have a use case where something happens in my firebase database and a incoming webhook sends a message to a private slack channel where my slack bot is invited to.
I could not manage to make my slack bot to take notice and react to those messages.
Is there a specific event or authorization scope that I should include in my bot's configuration?
Thanks,
Carlos
Currently, Slack does not allow bots to respond to bots. A possible solution is to have your bot listen for a given word (message.channels) using the slack events api. You will also have to send as_user: true as part of you incoming webhook json. chat.postMessage has a tester function that might help sort through the trial and error testing that you will have to do. You will also be able to see the bot_id and other useful information in the response.
