What format are the event logs in and can they be customized?

Event logs are in a CSV format when downloaded from the Admin Panel and returned in JSON format when retrieved via the API.

Can I filter the event logs to only show specific types of events?

Yes, filter events by modelID and date in the Admin Panel, or use parameters like originatingUserId and eventType with the API.

What's the best way to limit a query range?

To limit a query to a particular time range, you can supply startTime and/or endTime. These should be supplied in ISO 8601 format, e.g. 2023-01-20T15:58:30Z.

Is there a limit to the amount of event logs that can be streamed and stored?

The API has standard Web API rate limits with 1000 events per response and pagination for more results.

Events are updated in near real-time, with a delay of a few minutes at most.
