The activity log provides a timestamped record of all account activity, such as new or modified DNS or DHCP resources, monitoring jobs, users and API keys, and more. The log includes updates from all users associated with your account.
You can view this information via the NS1 portal or API. Note that, in some cases, using the NS1 to request activity log details renders more detailed information.
A user's account must have the "View activity log" permission enabled to view these details.
To view the activity log in the NS1 portal, click your username in the top right corner, and select Activity log from the menu.
Alternatively, you can navigate to the activity log from the portal dashboard. When you log into the portal, you are directed to the Dashboard page which contains a number of widgets to summarize key data sets. The widget titled "Latest activity" provides a snapshot of the most recent activity.
From here, click Go to activity log to view the full activity log.
Using the NS1 API, you can gather a more detailed activity log than what is available on the NS1 portal. For example, if a resource was deleted, the activity log returned in the API response includes details about the deleted resource.
Execute the GET request below, replacing
$NSONE_API_KEY with a valid API key with the "View activity log" permission enabled.
curl -X GET -H "X-NSONE-Key: $NSONE_API_KEY" https://api.nsone.net/v1/account/activity
You can schedule custom reports to capture key data sets — such as leases per second, DHCP top talkers, and more.
