Duo Admin API - Administrator Log Metadata - Need Clarification

Looking at the Administrator Log data and trying to understand a particular value in the “Description” field.

This shows up when action = “phone_update”, description = {“regen_mobile”: “”}

Has anyone else seen this in their logs? What does this mean?
I’ve attempted regenerating activation codes, modifying particular devices, updating phone numbers, and none of those events have triggered this data to appear.

I’ve also seen a {“regen_sms”: “”} value in the description field, but not as often as {“regen_mobile”: “”}.

Aloha @JJoy!

In the Administrator logs,regen_mobile happens when a Duo admin clicks “Generate Duo Mobile Activation Code” on a phone’s details page, and regen_sms is when an admin clicks the “Send SMS Passcodes…” link at the top of a phone’s details page.

Regen Mobile event: Admin Panel UI Administrator Actions report

Regen Mobile event: Admin API Admin Logs:

        {
            "action": "phone_update", 
            "description": "{\"regen_mobile\": \"\"}", 
            "object": "734-555-6987", 
            "timestamp": 1564432021, 
            "username": "DuoKristina"
        }

Regen SMS event: Admin Panel UI Administrator Actions report

Regen SMS event: Admin API Admin Logs:

{
       "action": "phone_update", 
       "description": "{\"regen_sms\": \"\"}", 
       "object": "734-555-6987", 
       "timestamp": 1564432030, 
       "username": "DuoKristina"
   }

We’ll get these reasons added to the list of API Administrator Actions.
