Difference between event actions


One of the properties returned by op list events is action, most values are self explanatory, however I'm confused by the difference between "patch", "update", and "updatea"?

    Hey @jscarle,

    Thanks for writing in to ask about the action types, my name is April and I'd be happy to help you with that.

    Here is a rundown of the differences in those events:

    • "patch" - this is used when patching vault items and is used to add or update items in a vault
    • "update" - this is a general update command for non-vault items such as updating a group, vault access, billing plans, user invites, etc..
    • "updatea" - this is used when updating vault attributes such as vault name and description

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
