Audit Log

Administration > Log Files > Audit Log

The audit log allows administrators to view all recorded Silk Central user activity. The log file stores all login and logout information, as well as all changes to the Silk Central database, for example projects, tests, and schedules.

To be able to view audit logs, ensure you have the View audit logs permission.

You can manage the listed log entries to suit your information needs by using the available features.

Sorting Data by Column

Clicking a column header sorts all listed data by that column. Clicking the same column header multiple times toggles the sort order between ascending and descending.

Selecting a Range From the Calendar

Click the displayed time range to expand the calendar. The From and To rows of the calendar allow you to specify start and end times for the period of time for which you want to view data. After specifying From and To times with the list boxes, click Update to update the audit log based on the new time range.

The day, week, month, quarter, [last 7 days], [last 31 days] links allow you to bypass the calendar and instead view information for set time periods.

You can also use the Forward and Backward arrows to increase and decrease the selected time range by the following intervals:
  • one day
  • one week
  • one month
  • one quarter

Use Increase and Decrease for increasing and decreasing the range of time covered by the audit log. Clicking Increase one time enlarges the period of time by 50%. Clicking Decrease one time reduces the period of time by 50%.

When the calendar displays a custom interval, for example after zooming in or out, you can use the left-most arrows, Earlier and Later, to move the selected period of time forward or backward in time by half of the selected interval.

Tip: After specifying a new time period, click Update to update the report.

Filtering Data

Filter options enable you to better target the audit log information you want to analyze.

You can filter listed data by:
Displays the actions of a specified user login.
Displays actions taken on a specified database item, for example project or location.
Displays selected operations, for example login, logoff, create, or delete.
