F5 Logs API 400 error

Hi All,

I am trying to fetch the logs using F5 Rest API, but when I ran the query with filter range: 

curl -sku admin:admin@123 -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET https://192.168.0.153/mgmt/tm/sys/log/ltm/stats?options=range,2023-02-21T13:48:34Z,lines,1000

I get 400 error:

[{"code":400,"message":"No log message found that matches query. File may be empty\n","errorStack":[],"apiError":3}]

Wanted to know the exact meaning of this error, is there any documentation for the F5 API Error messages.

      I have tried this command with /stats as well, still getting the same error

      I get the error only for few log types.

        srinidhi12 You might consider validating the user password and permissions. If you believe it to be correct I would create a new local user with the appropriate permissions and run the command with that users credentials.
