Portal Auditing Service

The auditing service allows you to log a set of events into a separate audit log file. All events are organized in groups. For example, the logging events User created and User deleted are grouped together and can therefore only be switched on or off together.

The log file contains one audit log message per line. All log messages start with a timestamp, followed by the optional transaction ID, the message code and the event message. Each event message contains the following:

  • The user ID of the user who has performed the action which triggered the audit event
  • Additional information about the event itself.
Events for actions that run in a transaction are written to the log file when the transaction s committed. If the transaction is rolled back, no event messages are written to the log file.

Events for actions that do not run in a transaction are written to the log immediately. In such cases it is not guaranteed that the related action was completed successfully.
