The new Transactions dashboard, launched recently, is also referred to as “API call history”. It provides histories of the transactions (API calls) made by applications in the sandbox and live environments. It provides details such as the date of the transaction, type of the transaction, status, amount, as well as the details of the API call, such as the request and response messages.
The new dashboard has many features:
- Displays history of all PayPal REST APIs.
- Shows API call details like HTTP status code, request, response and headers to help with diagnostics.
- Provides the ability to browse and find details quickly through pagination and filters.
- Has 10x better performance.

It has the following fields:
- Metadata – Metadata about the transaction Request
- HTTP request, including headers Response
- HTTP response, including headers
Sandbox Transactions Dashboard
An example of the sandbox transactions dashboard is shown below:
The sandbox transaction dashboard is similar to the live transaction dashboard, except that you can also filter the transactions based on the sandbox account. Since a developer can have multiple sandbox accounts associated with multiple sandbox applications, filtering on the basis of either a sandbox account email or an application can help you quickly find the transaction you are looking for.
