Add B2Bi REST API audit logs

B2Bi Rest API is becoming common in several solutions but there is not a proper audit log file or report to verify information like " USER - ACTION / API - TIMESTAMP"

It is difficult to understand what is actually being consumed, by whom and how often.

This lack of information does't not effect the product itself, but create problems to the business, specially in financial and bank industry.

Or a new B2Bi REST API Report.

    Frankly, I can't imagine how the B2BAPI functionality was released without some level of logging available, even if it meant requiring enablement of logging at debug levels. Audit and logging capabilities are extremely important for the majority of organizations and institutions. This lack of logging is both frightening and disappointing. Thank you in advance for making efforts to move the addition of logging functionality forward quickly.
