Auditlog API

This page explains how to get your auditlog data extracted. Note that the example array of audit log entries further down shows only the first entry and a subset of scan results for readability. You can use query parameters to filter your search.


/auditlogReturns an array of auditlog entriesGET
/auditlog/{id}Returns one auditlog entryGET
/computers/{computername}/auditlogReturns an array of auditlog entries for a certain computerGET
/users/{user}/auditlogReturns an array of auditlog entries for a certain user (user account or full name)GET
Note that the prefix of urls above depend on which data center you belong to. Please log in to see the full url.


apikeyYour apikey listed in your settings to retrieve the dataint


Filters can be supplied either as URL parameters or headers.

startidThe starting ID you wish to receive. Can be used for incremental offload of data to your own systemint
takeMaximum number of resources to return. Default is 50 to preserve bandwidth, maximum is 10000. For queries with more than 10000 records, pagination is mandatoryint
lastEntries are retrieved in ascending order by default. Last returns the latest X number of entries in descending order. Maximum is 10000.int
wantscandetailsUse this filter, if you wish to receive detailed lists of scan results. The default is to give you the overall result onlybit
typeOnly return either "Run As Admin" (type=app) or "Admin Sessions" (type=session) entries.string
statusOnly return entries from Requests - value can be "Pending", "Approved", "Denied" or "Quarantined" entries.string
startdateOnly return entries after the specified start date (format: yyyy-mm-dd).date
enddateOnly return entries before and including the specified end date (format: yyyy-mm-dd).date
  • Example filtered url to get 10 entries: /auditlog?startid=4050334&take=10&wantscandetails=1
  • Pagination works by using the last id in the list and feeding it as startid in the next query
  • To copy new data to your own system, we recommend to store the highest id (last entry in list) you have retrieved from a previous call and pass this number plus 1 as "startid"
  • Do NOT consistently use a high "take" number or flood the api. We will automatically throttle your account
