    Example responses

    This App Management API method approves an app install request, approves an app for a particular workspace, approves an app across an entire enterprise. When approved for an enterprise, an app can still be independently restricted on particular workspaces.

    This method requires an admin.* scope. It's obtained through the normal OAuth process, but there are a few additional requirements. The scope must be requested by an Enterprise Grid admin or owner, and the OAuth install must take place on the entire Grid org, not an individual workspace. See the admin.apps:write page for more detailed instructions.

    This API method for admins may only be used on Enterprise Grid.

    Exactly one of the team_id or enterprise_id arguments is required, not both.

    Either app_id or request_id is required. These IDs can be obtained either directly via the app_requested event, or by the admin.apps.requests.list method.
