Compliance Report

This report shows which items in the live environment are not compliant with the latest major version stored in the Version Control system. The categories of changes from the stored version are highlighted, to provide a quick compliance overview.

Change Auditor Report

This report shows Change Auditor events for a set of objects. Change Auditor is a comprehensive, low-level auditing tool that bypasses default Windows auditing mechanisms and provides a more robust audit trail. To run Change Auditor reports, you must have Change Auditor installed and the GPOADmin service account must be added to the Change Auditor Administrators group.

When a user logs in to GPOADmin and deploys a change to the live environment, those changes are made on their behalf by the GPOADmin service account. You can see more information about that user in the Initiator Username, Initiator SID (if the name cannot be resolved), and Comment columns of this report. This information is also available in the Change Auditor client.

Change Auditor Working Copies Report

This report shows Change Auditor events for any edits made to a checked-out working copy of a GPO. To run this report, you must have Change Auditor installed and the GPOADmin service account must be added to the Change Auditor Administrators group.

Deployment Report

This report displays the deployment details for all object types and gives you the option to view deployments within a specified date range.
