droplet history and api calls

Posted March 6, 2015 5.7k views


We are a new customer to Digital Ocean. We have noticed yesterday after several API calls to power/off/on and rebuild instances that the droplet history has not reflected those actions. Should we aspect the history to account for API calls? Let me know if I should file a support ticket.

The event history shown on the droplet page will only include control panel events. By clicking on Settings->Security you can view the full security log which includes all events via the API or Control Panel.

My droplet was “restored”, but I’m looking for more information about what happened. Who restored it? How? Where? From the terminal? From the console? Which backup did it restore it to?

Where can I get a detailed history of what happened to my droplet?
