Export with Audit Logs 

In the Audit tab, select Download CSV to download your Audit Logs.

Available for download in a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file, Audit Logs include all available Audit data for your team.

For each entry, the CSV includes:

  • Who performed the action
  • What time the action was performed
  • What kind of action was performed
  • Whether or not the action succeeded or failed

The Audit Logs CSV file uses the following schema and definitions. Not all attributes are relevant and apply to each entry.

  • timestamp: Timestamp when the action was recorded by the system.
  • resource.type: Type of resource that the log is related to.
  • resource.action: Create, Update, or Delete. In the case of certain resources, can be a system event.
  • resource.id: Contains a unique identifier associated with the resource being modified if applicable.
  • environment.slug: Lists the slug (unique name) of the specific Honeycomb Environment associated with the entry if applicable.
  • dataset.slug: Lists the slug (unique name) of the specific Honeycomb Dataset associated with the entry if applicable.
  • changed_fields: For Create, Update, or Delete logs, this field lists what attributes of the resource changed.
  • user.id: Lists the user’s id if a log is the result of a user action. Value will be “System” if it is the result of an automated action.
  • user.email: Lists the user’s email address if a log is the result of a user action.
  • user.ip_address: IP address that generated the log (only available on User Login entries).
  • metadata: Other information about the event or change, if available.
