Audit Logs

The LiveData UI tracks all user-driven interactions and resulting changes (including errors) and creates a record in the form of a log file.

Use these audit logs to monitor user activity in LiveData Migrator.


Only UI driven actions are recorded in these audit logs.

Where to find the audit logs and default configuration#

The following describes the default audit logging configuration for the LiveData UI:

File nameContaining directoryRotation periodRetention period
livedata_ui_audit.yyyy-MM-dd.log/var/log/wandisco/audit/uiDaily90 days
  • An audit log will not be created for the days that no UI activity was seen.
  • The rotation period cannot be changed.

See LiveData UI - Logging if you want to change the configuration.

Logging entry types and content#

Entry types#

There are three types of entries in the audit log:

  1. METHOD_ENTERED The user-driven action that was recorded.
  2. METHOD_RETURNED The user-driven change as a result of the action.
  3. METHOD_EXCEPTION Any exception/error that occurred as a result of the action.

Entry contents#

For each entry, the following will be recorded:

  • The timestamp of the action.
  • Who performed the action.
  • What type of entry it is.
  • The action data depending on the type of entry:
    • METHOD_ENTERED The data used to take the action.
    • METHOD_RETURNED The result of the action.
    • METHOD_EXCEPTION The contents of the exception thrown.

Redaction policy#

By default, all sensitive information (such as passwords and filesystem access keys) will be redacted in the audit entries.

Examples of audit entries#
