Some audit logs arrive with masked ip address

Some audit logs arrive with masked ip address

EvgenyAGRO
Explorer | Level 4

I'm using get_events rest api to fetch activity logs.

I've noticed that part of the logs arrive with masked ip_address field.

For example this was part of the activity log(the original ip was changed for the purpose of an example):

"geo_location":{"city":"Toronto","region":"Ontario","country":"CA","ip_address":"123.123.xxx.xxx"}}

So my question is basically why part of the logs arrive with masked ips?

Thanks.

For privacy purposes, e.g., when the relevant user is not on the connected team, the IP address for the actor may be partially redacted like this.
