Need Info about API Usage

Hi, I'm opening this topic hoping that someone from SF Staff help me to understand why in the last days our org suddenly started to have a high number of API usage per day. We already checked API Usage report, but that doesn't give us what is consuming the api. 

What I would like to have is a Splunk report from the last two days from Event Logs with IP, UserId and Count of api calls.

Could be possible please? The org Id is: 00DG0000000ii42

Are you able to raise a support case? You might get lucky and get a response from support, or you might have to wait a bit before they get to this post.

You might find the post API call limits and Reporting (FAQ) ( useful. In particular, if you have access to the Event Logging feature ( you can pull a report with all the API calls that occured within a specific time period.

You might also check the Login History Report. If the API calls include a login action if might give you some indication of who is making the calls and how frequently.

If you are using the Partner API for all your inbound calls, try including a Client ID in the request header. This will show up in the "API Calls Made Within Last 7 Days" report and allow you to identify who is making the calls.
