command lind and REST API for Tasks Log

HMC GUI "Tasks Log" is a great tool to show who and what changed on specific system.
Unfortunately the information is not available from CLI or API.

    There are 2 kinds of audit logs in HMC. One is the tasks log shown in the UI which covers the operations triggered from the new UI panels and other one is the Hardware management console events which covers the legacy UI panels, CLI command etc. The events under hardware management console type can be seen via lssvcevents commands. We will evaluate to expose a programmatic way (Rest API) for tasks log.

    This would be an ideal tool, as we would like to track any HMC activity to alert our management team.
