Audit Logging

An audit log can be best described as a simple log of changes, typically used for tracking temporal information. The eG manager can now be configured to create and maintain audit logs in the eG database, so that all key configuration changes to the eG Enterprise system, which have been effected via the eG user interface, are tracked.

The eG audit logs reveal critical change details such as what has changed, who did the change, and when the change occurred, so that administrators are able to quickly and accurately identify unauthorized accesses/modifications to the eG Enterprise system.

By default, audit logging is disabled. To enable the capability, follow the steps given below:

  • Login to the eG administrative interface.
  • Select the Manager option from the Settings tile.
  • Select the Auditing node from the manager settings panel.
  • In the right panel, set the Enable auditing flag to Yes.
  • Click the Update button to save the changes.

Subsequent to this, every configuration change that the user makes will be automatically logged in the database. To view the details logged and analyze their implications, eG Enterprise provides an exclusive Audits tile in its administrative interface, using which you can generate a variety of audit log reports.

The following sections deal with each one of these report types.
