Query parameters



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

If unspecified, at most 100 spaces are returned.

The maximum value is 1000. If you use a value more than 1000, it's automatically changed to 1000.

Negative values return an INVALID_ARGUMENT error.



Optional. A page token, received from a previous list spaces call. Provide this parameter 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.

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 can't 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.

Request body

The request body must be empty.

Response body
