Audit logs in Enterprise Grid

Audit logs provide a record of changes and usage on Enterprise Grid that help keep your org secure and protect against misuse. You can view audit logs directly in Slack, export them as a CSV and use the Audit logs API to create customised monitoring tools.

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 out 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: Audit logs show data dating back to mid-March 2018, when this API method became available to workspaces.   


Who can use this feature?
  • Org owners, and Org admins with the Audit logs admin system role
  • Available on the Enterprise Grid subscription
