Event logs

Understand and debug your authentication flows using Stytch event logs. Below is some useful context to help you get started.


Each event log maps to a specific action, which corresponds to either a Stytch API request (e.g. MagicLinksEmailLoginOrCreate) or a meaningful dashboard request (e.g. CreatePublicToken). Actions help you understand what types of requests are being made.

Status types

You can filter for event logs by status type. The following status types are available:

  • start marks the start of a request. It is paired with a subsequent success or error event log.
  • success marks the completion of a successful request.
  • error marks the failure of a request.

start and success/error event logs are tied together by request ID.

Log retention

Event logs should be available within a minute upon request completion and are currently retained for 30 days.
