API Details api API Describes details about a typical API (Application Programming Interface) call.
Category category_name String The event category name, as defined by category_uid value.
Category ID category_uid Integer The category unique identifier of the event.

API Activity
Cloud cloud Cloud Describes details about the Cloud environment where the event was originally created or logged.
Confidence confidence Integer The confidence of the reported event severity as a percentage: 0%-100%.

Deprecated since 1.1.0: Deprecated in upgrade from ocsf-0.31.1 to qdm-1.1.0

Count count Integer 1 The number of times that events in the same logical group occurred during the event Start Time to End Time period.
Data data JSON Additional data that is associated with the event.

Deprecated since 1.1.0: Deprecated in upgrade from ocsf-0.31.1 to qdm-1.1.0

Device device Device The device that reported the event.

Deprecated since 1.1.0: Deprecated in upgrade from ocsf-0.31.1 to qdm-1.1.0

Destination Endpoint dst_endpoint Network Endpoint The network destination endpoint.
Duration duration Integer The event duration or aggregate time, the amount of time the event covers from start_time to end_time in milliseconds.
End Time end_time Timestamp The end time of a time period, or the time of the most recent event included in the aggregate event.
Enrichments enrichments Enrichment The additional information from an external data source, which is associated with the event or a finding. For example add location information for the IP address in the DNS answers:

[{"name": "answers.ip", "value": "92.24.47.250", "type": "location", "data": {"city": "Socotra", "continent": "Asia", "coordinates": [-25.4153, 17.0743], "country": "YE", "desc": "Yemen"}}]
HTTP Request http_request HTTP Request Details about the underlying http request.
Message message String The description of the event/finding, as defined by the source.
Metadata metadata Metadata The metadata associated with the event or a finding.
Observables observables Observable The observables associated with the event or a finding.
Raw Data raw_data JSON The event data as received from the event source.
Record ID record_id String Unique idenifier for the event
Resources Array resources Resource Details Details about resources that were affected by the activity/event.
Severity severity String The event/finding severity, normalized to the caption of the severity_id value. In the case of 'Other', it is defined by the source.
Severity ID severity_id Integer

The normalized identifier of the event/finding severity.

The normalized severity is a measurement the effort and expense required to manage and resolve an event or incident. Smaller numerical values represent lower impact events, and larger numerical values represent higher impact events.

Source Endpoint src_endpoint Network Endpoint Details about the source of the activity.
Start Time start_time Timestamp The start time of a time period, or the time of the least recent event included in the aggregate event.
Status status String The event status, normalized to the caption of the status_id value. In the case of 'Other', it is defined by the event source.
Status Code status_code String The event status code, as reported by the event source.

For example, in a Windows Failed Authentication event, this would be the value of 'Failure Code', e.g. 0x18.
Status Details status_detail String The status details contains additional information about the event/finding outcome.
Status ID status_id Integer The normalized identifier of the event status.

Event Time time Timestamp The normalized event occurrence time or the finding creation time.
Timezone Offset timezone_offset Integer The number of minutes that the reported event time is ahead or behind UTC, in the range -1,080 to +1,080.
Type Name type_name String The event/finding type name, as defined by the type_uid.
Type ID type_uid Long The event/finding type ID. It identifies the event's semantics and structure. The value is calculated by the logging system as: class_uid * 100 + activity_id.
