The "Activity Services" APIs at /activities/ and /activityinstances/ are hardcoded to only act upon Portal activities. Attempting to use them to retrieve instance details of Provisioner activities results in 404 errors.
The API needs to be able to retrieve details of Provisioner activities. This would enable better reporting and alerting functionality:
1) Alerts/logging from Provisioner activities
Using "ActivityContext/ParticipantActivityKey" during activity execution would allow us to retrieve activity details (e.g. instance key, rollout name, etc) for logging or alerting from inside the activity. We can push status updates to external tools or to email alerts so Sponsor Admins can troubleshoot easily.
2) Integration with other reporting tools
We would like to integrate with other reporting tools to provide other views of PEM activity status, as well as pulling in data from other sources to combine with PEM activity status.
This would let us build a solution with a broad view of an onboarding solution, and not have to login to multiple places to manually view or export reports.
Note that this functionality is already possible for Portal activities.
Other activity-related APIs are able to access Provisioner activities:
