Bot user tokens may use this method for direct message and multi-party direct message conversations but lack sufficient permissions to use this method on public and private channels.

  • cursor - Paginate through collections of data by setting the cursor parameter to a next_cursor attribute returned by a previous request's response_metadata. Default value fetches the first "page" of the collection. See pagination for more detail. ex: dXNlcjpVMDYxTkZUVDI=
  • inclusive - Include messages with latest or oldest timestamp in results only when either timestamp is specified. ex: true
  • latest - End of time range of messages to include in results. ex: 1234567890.123456
