HTTP request


The URL uses gRPC Transcoding syntax.

Query parameters



Optional. The maximum number of spaces to return. The service may return fewer than this value.

If unspecified, at most 100 spaces are returned.

The maximum value is 1000; values above 1000 are coerced to 1000.

Negative values return an INVALID_ARGUMENT error.



Optional. A page token, received from a previous list spaces call. Provide this to retrieve the subsequent page.

When paginating, the filter value should match the call that provided the page token. Passing a different value may lead to unexpected results.



Optional. A query filter.

Requires user authentication.

You can filter spaces by the space type (spaceType).

To filter by space type, you must specify valid enum value, such as SPACE or GROUP_CHAT (the spaceType cannot be SPACE_TYPE_UNSPECIFIED). To query for multiple space types, use the OR operator.

For example, the following queries are valid:

spaceType = "SPACE"
spaceType = "GROUP_CHAT" OR spaceType = "DIRECT_MESSAGE"

Invalid queries are rejected by the server with an INVALID_ARGUMENT error.

With service account authentication, this field is ignored and the query always returns all spaces. But Chat API still validates the query syntax with service accounts, so invalid queries are still rejected.
