Accessing audit log API endpoints

Note that only Service Accounts belonging to organizations on the Asana Enterprise+ tier, as well as legacy tier Legacy Enterprise, can access audit log API endpoints. Authentication with a Service Account's personal access token is required.

Asana's audit log is an immutable log of important events in your organization's Asana instance.

The audit log API allows you to monitor and act upon important security and compliance-related changes. Organizations might use this API endpoint to:

  • Set up proactive alerting with a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool like Splunk

  • Conduct reactive investigations when a security incident takes place

  • Visualize key domain data in aggregate to identify security trends

Note that since the API provides insight into what is happening in an Asana instance, the data is read-only. That is, there are no "write" or "update" endpoints for audit log events.

For a full list of supported events, see supported audit log events.
