systemConfiguration.loginRecordConfiguration.delete.enabledBoolean

Whether or not FusionAuth should delete the login records based upon this configuration. When true the loginRecordConfiguration.delete.numberOfDaysToRetain will be used to identify login records that are eligible for deletion. When this value is set to false login records will be preserved forever.

systemConfiguration.loginRecordConfiguration.delete.numberOfDaysToRetainInteger

The number of days to retain login records.

systemConfiguration.reportTimezoneString

The time zone used to adjust the stored UTC time when generating reports. Since reports are usually rolled up hourly, this timezone will be used for demarcating the hours.

Update the System Configuration

This API is used to update an existing System Configuration.

You must specify the Id of the System Configuration you are updating on the URI. No Id is required to update this object.

You must specify all of the properties of the System Configuration when calling this API with the PUT HTTP method. When used with PUT, this API doesn’t merge the existing System Configuration and your new data. It replaces the existing System Configuration with your new data.

Utilize the PATCH HTTP method to send specific changes to merge into an existing System Configuration.

Request

API Key Authentication
Update the System Configuration
PUT /api/system-configuration
PATCH /api/system-configuration

When using the PATCH method, you can either use the same request body documentation that is provided for the PUT request for backward compatibility. Or you may use either JSON Patch/RFC 6902] or JSON Merge Patch/RFC 7396. See the PATCH documentation for more information.

When using the PATCH method with a Content-Type of application/json the provided request parameters will be merged into the existing object, this means all parameters are optional when using the PATCH method and you only provide the values you want changed. A null value can be used to remove a value. Patching an Array will result in all values from the new list being appended to the existing list, this is a known limitation to the current implementation of PATCH.

Rebuild the Elasticsearch index

This API is used to rebuild the Elasticsearch index. In general you do not need to rebuild the search index at runtime, and doing will cause additional CPU and I/O overhead to FusionAuth until the request has completed. Please be careful with this API.

This API may be useful if you are building a new FusionAuth environment from an existing database w/out moving over an existing search index. In this scenario you will need to rebuild the search index from the database in order see the Users show up in the UI or use any of the Search APIs.

Beginning in version 1.48.0, index aliases are used to minimize any disruption to API requests utilizing the search index. In practice this should not affect you, but please be aware that FusionAuth will use the configured index name as an alias, and the actual index name will be suffixed with _a or _b.

For example, the default name for the user index is fusionauth_user. You can expect to see the actual index to be created as fusionauth_user_a with an alias added named fusionauth_user. Using this same example, when a reindex request is started, a new index named fusionauth_user_b will be created, and when the re-index operation is complete the alias fusionauth_user will be changed to point to fusionauth_user_b and the fusionauth_user_a will be deleted.

Request

API Key Authentication
Rebuild the Elasticsearch index
POST /api/system/reindex

Request Body

indexStringrequired

The name of the index to rebuild. The possible values are:

  • fusionauth_entity The entity search index
  • fusionauth_user The user search index

Please note, that while the index names can be modified using the FusionAuth configuration, that does not change how you call this API. For example, even if you modify the configuration to name the user search index fusionauth_user_dev, you will still use fusionauth_user to indicate you wish to rebuild the user search index.

Example Request JSON
{
  "index": "fusionauth_user"
}

Response

Retrieve System Status

The Status API is used to retrieve the current status and metrics for FusionAuth. This is useful for health checks and monitoring.

By default, this API requires authentication. If you prefer to allow unauthenticated access to this endpoint from local scrapers, you may set fusionauth-app.local-metrics.enabled=true. See the configuration reference for more info.

FusionAuth also supports a system status check using Prometheus.

Request

Localhost Authentication BypassNo Authentication Required
Return the system status without an API key
GET /api/status
API Key Authentication
Return the system status with an API key
GET /api/status

Response

The JSON response from the Status API is complex and subject to change. The only exception is the version key.

version will not change and will be returned as below. As a reminder, an API key is required to obtain this value unless explicitly allowed from localhost.

{
{/* .. */}
    "version": "1.26.1"
{/* .. */}
}

The specific contents of the JSON body are not documented here. If you choose to use this API for monitoring purposes you should primarily use the response code to indicate server health.
