Audit Events page

The Audit Events page is displayed when Audit Events is selected from the Auditing task list in the navigation pane of the Administration Tasks tab, and lists all of the events available for auditing. It also displays the facility to which the event belongs, the severity assigned to each event, if the event is enabled or disabled and the type of license that is required.

The Audit Events page contains an alphabetical list of all the Change Auditor events, including the following information:

Severity

Indicates the severity level assigned to each event:

When your cursor is placed in this cell, a drop-down arrow is added allowing you to change an event’s severity setting.

Facility Name

Displays the name of the facility to which each event belongs.

Event Class

Displays a descriptive title for each event.

Status

Indicates whether the event is enabled or disabled.

When your cursor is placed in this cell, a drop-down arrow is added allowing you to either enable or disable the event.

License Type

Displays the type of Change Auditor license required for each event:

Results

Displays the result criteria used to capture change events. That is, you can use the options in this column to specify if an event is to be captured based on the results of the operation mentioned in the event.

For example, if you only want to capture successful events where the operation occurred as stated in the event, you would set this to Success Only. Then, if the change was prevented from occurring as stated in the event (because the object was protected by Change Auditor or the operation was prevented due to a factor/setting outside of Change Auditor’s control) the associated event would not be captured.
