Mount Point: /api/v7/audits


Fetch audit events from Cloudera Manager (CM) and CM managed services like HDFS, HBase, Impala and Hive.

By default, this call will fetch all audit events corresponding to a 1 day window based on provided end time (which defaults to the current CM server time). The startTime and endTime parameters can be used to control the window being queried.

Audit events for CM managed services are only retrieved if Cloudera Navigator server is running.


name description type default
maxResults Maximum number of audits to return query 100
resultOffset Offset of audits to return query 0
startTime Start of the period to query (defaults to 1 day ago relative to endTime) query
endTime End of the period to query (defaults to current time) query now
query The query to filter out audits in the system. It accepts querying the intersection of a list of constraints, joined together with semicolons (without spaces). For example:

looks for audits with listStatus command.
looks for audits with listStatus command but excludes audits generated by foo username
looks for audits with listStatus command and source that contains the string 'oozie'.
Following are valid selectors for the query (if applicable to the audit):
Selector Description SCM HDFS HBase Hive Impala
qualifier Column qualifier x
source Source resource of the operation x x x x x
hostIpAddress Host IP Address x
role Cloudera Manager Role x
service Cloudera Manager Service x x x x x
command Operation name x x x x x
username User name x x x x x
impersonator Impersonator x x x x
family Column family x
table Table name x x x
database Database name x x
ipAddress IP Address x x x x
destination Destination resource of the operation x x x x

The only supported operator is ";" (Boolean AND). Boolean OR is not supported.

The supported comparators are == and != Note that "LIKE" comparison is supported using the wild card syntax, for example foo==*value*. Asterisk is interpreted as a wild card character and must not be part of the value. (LIKE comparison queries are converted to standard SQL LIKE syntax, so any % (%25) character in a value that also contains a wild card will be interpreted as a wild card.)

Values for time related query parameters (startTime and endTime) should be ISO8601 timestamps.

Available since API v4.
