Definitions for Power BI events

I am using the Power BI Rest APIs "admin/activityevents"

Admin - Get Activity Events


I'd like to find the "definitions" for the events/operations that are returned

Example, I am seeing an Operation "GetSnapshots" by many users and I have no idea what this is.

 I tried searching for the Activity Definitions but could not find any reference materials or links to such.

This is only mildly helpful.  There is a list within this article.. but it is not complete and each item is not fully described.  I am specifically looking for the definition for "GetSnapshots"... I have no idea how or what this is.. Users are coming up as performing this activity and I am not sure what it is.. or how to even do this myself..


There has to be a Document somewhere that describes all the Audit Events being tracked and available to be reported on?  I can't imagine that MS would not have sucha document.... 

I think when they say snapshots they mean bookmarks.
