    This Admin API lists active login sessions to your Slack organization.

    If no user_id and team_id are passed, you'll receive a paginated list of all sessions.

    When you pass user_id and team_id (which must be used together), you'll receive a list of active sessions by that user on the workspace specified by team_id.

    These sessions can be used to reset a session with the invalidate method: the user will be logged out and forced to login again. If the user has multiple sessions with multiple devices, the other sessions will be unaffected.

    If you'd like to reset all sessions for a given user, use the admin.users.session.reset method instead.

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

    Inside an active_session, you'll find two objects: recent and created.

    recent signifies the most recent version of the session, while created represents the original version of the session. This covers the case where the same session persists across multiple slack_client_versions (or OS versions or IPs).

    If the session hasn't changed since creation, you'll only find created and not recent.

    Both recent and created contain the following info:

    • device_hardware: The type of device for the session.
    • os: The operating system for the device.
    • os_version: The version of the OS.
    • slack_client_version: The version of the Slack client, if available.
    • ip: The IP address for the session.
