Origin tab

The Origin tab allows you to search for events based on the workstation or server where the event originated. When multiple ‘origin’ criteria is specified on this tab, Change Auditor uses the ‘OR’ operator to evaluate change events, returning events that originated from any of the specified workstations or servers.

The Origin tab contains the following information and controls:

Runtime Prompt

Select this check box to prompt for the originating workstation or server whenever the search is run. That is, when Run is selected, the Add Origin dialog is displayed allowing you to enter the wildcard expression to locate a specific workstation or server.

NOTE: When this check box is checked, Add is deactivated.

Exclude the Following Selection(s)

Select this check box to specify the workstations or servers to exclude from the search. That is, Change Auditor will return events originating from all workstations and servers except those listed in the Origin list.

Origin list

By default, all events regardless of where they originated are included in a new search and therefore this list box is initially empty.

Once criteria is selected, this list box contains the wildcard expression used to locate the workstations and servers to include in the search (or excluded from the search if the Exclude the Following Selection(s) option is checked).

2
Click Add.
4
After entering the wildcard expression to use, click OK to close the dialog and add the wildcard expression to the ‘origin’ list.
NOTE: You can use Add with Events (instead of Add) to select a workstation or server that already has an event associated with it in the database. The workstations and servers available for selection are based on the ‘when’ clause (When tab) and the search limit (Info tab) specified for the current search.

Alert tab

The Alert tab allows you to enable alerting and define how and where to dispatch alerts. See Alert tab (Search Properties tabs) for a detailed description of the contents of this tab.

Report tab

The Report tab allows you to enable reporting and define when and where to send a report. Reports can be sent to email addresses and shared folders. See Report tab (Search Properties tabs) for a detailed description of the contents of this tab.
