Audit Logging

An audit log can be best described as a simple log of changes, typically used for tracking temporal information. The eG SuperManager is configured to create and maintain audit logs in the eG SuperManager database, so that all key configuration changes to the eG SuperManager 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 SuperManager system.

By default, audit logging capability is disabled for the SuperManager. If for any reason you want to enable this capability, follow the steps given below:

  • Open the eg_services.ini available in the <eG_SUPERMANAGER_INSTALL_DIR>\manager\config folder.
  • Set the AuditlogEnabled flag in to yes.
  • Save the eg_services.ini file.

By default, every configuration change that the user makes will be automatically logged in the SuperManager database. To view the details logged and analyze their implications, eG SuperManager system provides an exclusive Audits menu 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.
