Platform Events


This is an experimental feature and currently only available upon request. Details and mechanisms for this feature can change at any moment.

It is possible to receive events from within our platform, allowing you to get more insight into which actions it performing. You could log these for your own purposes.

At the time of writing this is an experimental feature that we are testing with a few clients. There is no publicly available endpoint that allows to you automatically sign up to our event stream. But you can request access to it via the usual support channels.


After you have requested access to the event stream, it can be accessed through a RabbitMQ connection, using the AMQP protocol. There are libraries available for many programming languages. Statistical panels and mechanisms like Logstash also have easy means to connect to a RMQ event or message stream.

Event structure

All events are provided via the stream as JSON objects with at least the following properties:

  • level
  • service
  • group
  • code
  • message
  • @timestamp
  • parameters
