Use the Audit Logs API

We built the Audit Logs API for Enterprise Grid orgs with security, legal, and compliance in mind. Use the Audit Logs API to:

  • Send data to a security information and event management (SIEM) tool.
  • Watch for potential security issues or malicious attempts to access your org.
  • Build custom apps for better insight into how your company uses Slack. 

You can learn more about how to use the Audit Logs API or work with someone technical on your team to get started.  

Note: The availability of audit log data prior to upgrading to Enterprise Grid depends on your previous Slack plan. To learn more about audit logs, contact our Support team.
