channel_left event

You left a channel

Compatibility: RTM Events API

Expected scopes:

{
    "type": "channel_left",
    "channel": "C024BE91L"
}

The channel_left event is sometimes sent to all connections for a user when that user leaves a public channel. It is sometimes withheld.

Clients should respond to this message by closing the channel — this means that when a channel is left from client A, it will automatically be closed in client B.

In addition to this message, all existing members of the channel will receive a channel_leave message event.
