Audit Logs

Earlier this year, we introduced audit logs as a beta feature in the Unkey dashboard, meaning that they were an opt-in feature for beta testers. They're now generally available to all customers.

Navigating to the audit logs page in the Unkey dashboard, you'll see a live feed of all of the events that have occured in your Unkey workspace, from all your customers.

For example, if you invited a new teammate to your workspace and they proceeded to create a new key, verify it, and add ratelimiting to their account, you'll see that in the audit logs - along with location and timestamp.

This feature is primarily geared towards our larger customers: several software regulations - for instance, GDPR and SOCII - require audit logging. So this feature unlocks the ability to use Unkey for our compliance-conscious-customers!

There are two other primary reasons why audit logs are important:

  • Security: logging user actions helps to prevent and mitigate security breaches
  • Debugging: having a historical record of events in your workspace can be useful for time-travel debugging, just like your git history is

Audit Logs are available to all customers with a 30-day retention period. If you'd like to access audit logs for longer, you can upgrade to Pro via the dashboard. The Pro tier comes with a 90-day retention period for audit logs.

If you need an audit log retention period longer than 90 days, you can contact us to discuss your needs.
