Cloud Administration User Event Log APICloud Administration User Event Log API
The Cloud Administration 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 NetWitness. Event logs are retrieved in chronological order in batches, and do not contain duplicates. Events are retained for 40 days and then purged.
The endpoint, which can be either the SIEM or another client, uses the Administration API Key to call the User Event Log API. The Super Admin generates this key and provides it to the Client Developer, as described in Manage API Keys for the Administration Event Log, User Event Log, and Help Desk APIs.
For information on audit log messages that describe user activities, see User Event Monitor Messages for the Cloud Authentication Service. For Super Admin and Help Desk Admin activities, see Administration Log Messages for the Cloud Authentication Service.
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.
