API Platform Base Path: https://api.enterprise.apigee.com/v1

API Resource Path:


Description: Lists audit records for management operations against APIs, API revisions, and policies. (Note that base path inserts audits before organizations: /audits/organizations/{org_name}.

Verb: GET
Auth: Basic Auth
Media types:


For every call made to the management API, Apigee Edge logs an audit record. The /audits API enables you to obtain a record of all management calls made against entities in an organization.

By calling /audits, you can determine, for example, when an API proxy was deployed to an environment, and by whom. You can also use the audits API to retrieve the management history of OAuth tokens, enabling you to verify app end user consent.

To generate a request to the audit API, append the target resource as a URL parameter to the base path of the request for an audit.

A response from the audit API returns a history of CREATE, UPDATE, and DELETE operations on the audit target.

Supported audit targets include:

  • /apis/{api_name}
  • /apis/{api_name}/revisions/{revision_number}/policies/{policy_name}
  • /apis/{api_name}/revisions/{revision_number}/resources/{resource_name}
  • /oauth2/accesstokens
  • /oauth2/authorizationcodes
  • /oauth1/accesstokens
  • /oauth1/requesttokens
  • /developers
  • /apps
  • /apiproducts

Note that a resource name identifies a JavaScript, Python, Java, or XSLT file stored under /resources in an API proxy configuration.

To retrieve all audit records for sub-entities, use the query parameter expand=true. By setting expand=true on /apis, you return audit records for all revisions, policies, and resources for all API proxies in your organization.

The API to get the create or delete records for an API proxy is /v1/audits/o/myorg/apis/myapi.

The API to get the deploy or undeploy records for an API proxy revision is: /v1/audits/o/myorg/e/test/apis/v1/revisions/1/deployments. Note that this API is used for a specific environment. 

If you deploy an API revision, the action is recorded as a CREATE operation. If you undeploy, the action is recorded as a DELETE operation.
