The RSA SecurID Access User Event Log API is a REST-based web services interface that allows user event logs to be retrieved from the Cloud Authentication Service. Customers can use this REST API to import the user event logs into their security information and event management (SIEM) solution, such as RSA NetWitness. Event logs are retrieved in chronological order in batches, and do not contain duplicates.

Clients calling this API must authenticate themselves by including a JSON Web Token in a request. For instructions on using this token, see Authentication for the Cloud Administration REST APIs .

You can download the API Software Developer Kit (SDK) from
