FraudDetector / Client / get_event_types



Gets all event types or a specific event type if name is provided. This is a paginated API. If you provide a null maxResults, this action retrieves a maximum of 10 records per page. If you provide a maxResults, the value must be between 5 and 10. To get the next page results, provide the pagination token from the GetEventTypesResponse as part of your request. A null pagination token fetches the records from the beginning.
