  "details": {
    "resultCode": "200",
    "resultDescription": "1 events deleted."
  }
}

Sharing of events

Events can be shared between collaborating tenants. Events are associated with assets and events are shared implicitly if the corresponding asset is shared, i.e, a sharer tenant needs to share with the asset with receiver tenant to share the events with receiver tenant. The receiver tenant is only allowed to read the events. Param "includeShared" is needed to query shared events.

HTTP GET /events?includeShared=true
