API Notifications and History Log

To help developers using our SproutVideo API, we’ve started recording every API request made and every notification we send out. Being able to review these details is critical during the integration process. Read on for details on locating these logs, and how to put them to good use!

Locating API Logs

To find these logs, navigate to ‘Account Settings’, and select API on the lefthand side of the screen. Then, click on ‘View API History’ to check your logs.

Locate API Logs for Troubleshooting

Note that SproutVideo only retains these logs for 30 days. Also, we only retain up to 1,000 log entries at a time.

Using Your API Logs

When creating an integration with the SproutVideo platform, API logs can be really useful. If you are encountering errors, the logs will give you the details you need to troubleshoot the issue. Rather than wasting your time guessing at the problem, you’ll be able to tell exactly what’s wrong based on the error message.
