The feature was introduced in version 9.2.1:

ASA Embedded Event Manager Configuration Example

This document describes Embedded Event Manager (EEM), which is a troubleshooting tool that was added in Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Version 9.2(1). The functionality is similar to Cisco IOS? based EEM. It is a powerful way to run CLI commands based on ASA events (syslogs) and save the output. This document covers an introduction to the feature as well as some example EEM applets.
