The 'Audit Logs' page is available under the 'Manage' drawer as shown below.

 

 

This page allows the user to view all auditable actions performed by users on the system.

 

Audit Logs can be filtered by one or more of ‘Timestamp’, 'Level', ‘User’, ‘Host’ or ‘Details’ fields located at the top of the screen.

 

 

Click on one of the input boxes below the ‘Timestamp’. This will pop up a calendar view.  Select the specific dates for which the log needs to be filtered as shown below.

 

 

 

The 'Level' dropdown displays the various types of actions performed by the users and the user can choose all actions or a specific action.

 

 

Here is a short description for each of the user actions presented in the 'Level' dropdown -

  • Error - generated when an alert of severity 'Error' is triggered
  • Warning - generated when an alert of severity 'Warning' is triggered
  • Information - generated when an alert of severity 'information' is triggered
  • Success Audit - generated when a user successfully logs in
  • Failure Audit - generated when a user login attempt fails
  • Alert Raised  - generated when an alert is raised in response to a system or user action
  • Alert Cleared - generated when an alert has been explicitly cleared by the user by clicking on the 'Clear' option presented to the user
  • Alert Acknowledged - generated when an alert has been explicitly acknowledged by the user by clicking on the 'Acknowledge' link
  • Alert Enabled - generated when the user has enabled an alert by editing the Alert Settings
  • Alert Disabled - generated when the user has disabled an alert by editing the Alert Settings
  • Alert Action Enabled - generated when an alert is enabled and configured to use an available notification mechanism such as email
  • Alert Action Disabled - generated when an alert action is disabled. This implies that the alert is not configured to use an available notification mechanism (again, only applies to email currently)

 

The ‘User’ dropdown lists all users that have a web account on this system and you can choose all users or a specific user.

 

 

You can also enter search strings in the ‘Host’ and ‘Details’ fields to filter the log further. A sample of a log filtered based on specific dates, level, user and host IP is shown below.

 

You can refresh the log view after filtering by clicking on the Refresh icon located on the bottom right hand corner of the Audit Logs screen. Right next to it is the export icon to export the log into a csv (Comma Separated Values) file. The csv file has additional information about the system that can be used for debugging. Clicking on this icon will prompt you to either Open or Save this file.

Selecting Open will then open the file in Microsoft Excel. Alternatively, you can Save this file to a desired location and open it later with a spreadsheet application for further parsing.

At the bottom of the Audit Logs screen are options for navigating between various pages and a dropdown for selecting the number of entries shown on a page. The far right corner displays the total number of entries and pages in the log.
