|EventDate||Date and time||Filter, sort||The date and time when a URI event happened after the query execution takes place. For example, 2020-08-19 T 14:12:23.|
|EventIdentifier||String||Filter, sort||The unique ID of the event. For example, 0b4779b0-0da1-4619-a383-0a46891dff90.|
|Message||String||Nillable||The message that appears when the operation fails. For example, OperationStatus= FAILURE.|
