Manage your Enterprise Grid organization with APIs

As an owner or admin in an Enterprise Grid organization, there are a number of tasks you might need to complete to keep your org running smoothly. With Slack’s admin APIs, you can build a custom Slack app or run an API to automate management tasks, instead of managing them individually from the admin dashboard.

Note: Certain actions are only available through admin APIs, while others are available through both APIs and the admin dashboard. When you choose to use an API, you may not be able to complete that action in the admin dashboard.


Ways to manage your org with APIs

Below are a few actions you can take to manage your org with admin APIs. For a full list, visit Slack API.
