Log Audit Search

Find out who did what when. You may have a Policy or a need for Compliance to Audit sensitive operations performed by both Users and the system itself. The Nodinite built-in auditing feature enables just that!

The 'Log Audit Search Modal' is accessible from the Administration menu. From here, a user with the predefined Nodinite Administrator Role can know who did what and when.

Log Audit Search is a function intended to make it easy for your administrators to search and find specific operations performed by Nodinite Core Services and end-users.

How do I find out who did what and when?

As an Administrator, you can perform searches using any of the following filters:

  • Date: Specify the time threshold for your search.
  • Operation: Search for keywords or sentences by Log Audited operations.
  • Users: Search for a specific user linked to the logs (Note: users from AD-windows groups are inaccessible).
  • Level: Search for a particular type of error, e.g. Information, Error, Warning, Critical.
  • Function: This is the Nodinite internal name of a function. Most often used for troubleshooting various reported issues.

Many operations involve multiple steps that may be part of a distributed transaction and span numerous operations. Click the Action button and select 'show related' to get all correlated logs.
