Audit data access rules

This endpoint enables you to restrict the search and access privileges of usergroups to audit data.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/acl/audit_data
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists the available audit data access rules.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/acl/audit_data

Query a specific audit data access rule

To find out the contents of a particular audit data access rule, complete the following steps:

NOTE:

If you have an SPS user who has Search > Search in all connections privileges in AAA > Access Control, the autogenerated-all-data-access-id rule is automatically generated. Therefore, you can almost always query this audit data access rule.

  1. Query the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/acl/audit_data/<key-of-rule-to-be-queried> endpoint.
    curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/acl/audit_data/<key-of-rule-to-be-queried>

    The following is a sample response received.

Code Description Notes
201 Created The new resource was successfully created.

400

SemanticError

The configuration contains semantic errors, inconsistencies or other problems that would put the system into an unreliable state if the configuration had been applied. The details section contains the errors that were found in the configuration.

401 Unauthenticated The requested resource cannot be retrieved because the client is not authenticated and the resource requires authorization to access it. The details section contains the path that was attempted to be accessed, but could not be retrieved.
401 AuthenticationFailure Authenticating the user with the given credentials has failed.
404 NotFound The requested object does not exist.

Active sessions

The api/active-sessions endpoint has only one parameter and it only serves the DELETE request.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/active-sessions
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/aaa/acls

The user (in this example, user1) has to be a member of a group that has read and write/perform privileges for Active Sessions (/special/active_sessions). After authentication, user1 can delete the active session determined by the session ID.

curl -k --user user1 --cookie-jar /tmp/cookie https://192.168.122.194/api/authentication
