user_list_events

This method lists the events created by the authenticated user. Public events may optionally be returned if no authentication tokens are submitted.

This method can return a lot of data! In order to speed up response times, try filtering our unnecessary event attributes by taking advantage of the ‘do_not_display’ parameter, or by selecting events by status.
