Bot Integration with Glip

I'm looking for an overview on what is required to get a Bot to work with Glip.

I have done the following:
  1. Created an app in (sandbox) as type server/bot
  2. Created a bot in Heroku (Tried hubot and Litabot)
In both cases, I get an authentication failure.  I think I need to authorize the bot first with the callback address, but this seems to be a chicken and egg problem!

The bot won't run because it can't authenticate, and I can't authorize the bot until it runs long enough to process the callback message.

I feel like I'm missing something simple to get it to work.

Any ideas / help would be appreciated!

Hi Chad,

Did you follow the instructions to set the configuration for your bot from here

Currently, we don't have example code for Hubot and Litabot. But there is a tutorial for Botkit ( and the configuration and authentication is pretty the same. Please have a look at the tutorial to see if you can find what is wrong with your project.

Let me know if that does help.
