Event Logs

1. Overview

This API has been available since 1.6.0

The Event Log contains messages that are not easy to convey to user at runtime - logs and errors from asynchronous code execution. These messages include:

  • SMTP transport errors

  • Lambda execution exceptions

  • Lambda execution console logs

  • SAML IdP integration errors and debug

  • Webhook event errors

  • Runtime exceptions due to email template rendering issues

This page contains the APIs that are used to retrieve Event Logs. Here are the APIs:
