This method is used to retrieve the "access logs" for users on a workspace.

Each access log entry represents a user accessing Slack from a specific user, IP address, and user agent combination.


Argument Example Required Description

Authentication token bearing required scopes.

before1457989166Optional, default=now

End of time range of logs to include in results (inclusive).

count20Optional, default=100

Number of items to return per page.

page2Optional, default=1

Page number of results to return.

Present arguments as parameters in application/x-www-form-urlencoded querystring or POST body. This method does not currently accept application/json.

Need to time travel? Set the before parameter to the oldest timestamp returned by the method to browse access logs from further back in time.


The method's paginated response contains a list of access log entries. Each item in the logins array represents a number of possible user interactions, collated by the user, IP address, and user agent combination. These include actual logins as well as other API calls that are typically made when accessing Slack.

This response demonstrates pagination and two access log entries.

A workspace must be on a paid plan to use this method, otherwise the paid_only error is thrown:

    "ok": false,
    "error": "paid_only"

Each access log entry contains the user id and username that accessed Slack.

date_first is a unix timestamp of the first access log entry for this user, IP address, and user agent combination.

date_last is the most recent for that combination.

count is the total number of access log entries for that combination.

ip is the IP address of the device used.

user_agent is the reported user agent string from the browser or client application.

isp is our best guess at the internet service provider owning the IP address.

country and region are also our best guesses on where the access originated, based on the IP address.


The paging information contains the count of items returned, the total number of items reacted to, the page of results returned in this response and the total number of pages available. Please note that the max count value is 1000 and the max page value is 100.

This method does not yet support cursored pagination.


This table lists the expected errors that this method could return. However, other errors can be returned in the case where the service is down or other unexpected factors affect processing. Callers should always check the value of the ok params in the response.


It is not possible to request more than 1000 items per page or more than 100 pages.


This is only available to paid teams.

The method was called via a POST request, but the charset specified in the Content-Type header was invalid. Valid charset names are: utf-8 iso-8859-1.


The method was called via a POST request with Content-Type application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data, but the form data was either missing or syntactically invalid.

This table lists the expected warnings that this method will return. However, other warnings can be returned in the case where the service is experiencing unexpected trouble.


The method was called via a POST request, and recommended practice for the specified Content-Type is to include a charset parameter. However, no charset was present. Specifically, non-form-data content types (e.g. text/plain) are the ones for which charset is recommended.


The method was called via a POST request, and the specified Content-Type is not defined to understand the charset parameter. However, charset was in fact present. Specifically, form-data content types (e.g. multipart/form-data) are the ones for which charset is superfluous.
