View the SIEM Event Service Block List

Endpoint URL: {identityDomain} /config/applications/{appId} /eventdelivery/readBlocklist


Returns a list of the SIEM Event Delivery event types that have been blocked for the specified application. If an event type has been blocked, event messages for that type will not be delivered by the event delivery service; however, all other event types (i.e., all the event types not on the block list) will be delivered. By default, block lists are empty, meaning that applications receive event messages for all available event types.

Important. This endpoint was previously known as the "readBlacklist" endpoint. The name has been changed, but the functionality remains exactly the same.
