Before V1 deprecated API user to give information about all the categories. After it is deprecated I am not able see events for files category. Please provide more information about the same. Is the API /1/team/log/get_events call restricted to provide events on files or some bug is stopping me to get information about files.
My request does not has any category filter.

Hi Murali, the deprecation was only an announcement, and didn't itself involve any functionality change. I'll be happy to look into this to see if you're hitting some bug though.
I just tried this myself and I am seeing events being returned by that endpoint with "event_category": "files" though.
Note that per the documentation these events are only returned for 'Sign in as' sessions. Is it possible that there just haven't been any such events in those sessions for the team you're looking at within the time range you're specifying?
The recent AdminX announcement appears to introduce audit events for regular file activity and not just activity during 'Sign in as' sessions. Would this data be made available via the API endpoint as well?
Thanks, Today I tried it again and worked fine. I am seeing events for files as well.
Surprisingly It is the same user token I had other day and also it is same request that i had saved, and it worked today.
Just wanted to confirm what is 'Sign in as' sessions?
Does that mean if I am doing API call should the user be signed in?
In the documentation i see that 'sign in as' has been removed, Does this confirms that I can get all the events now and without any limits like 'sign in as' sessions.
Thanks Gregory, While I was playing with API, I observed that files event does not log in case of external users upload.
Here is my use case, I have shared a folder to a not team member and non team member has uploaded file to a shared folder. In this case when I query API response does not contain any event.
I believe that API should log all the events for any change that is done in the App.
