User activity history

Postby Mwaters » Tue May 21, 2013 4:09 pm

Is it possible to see a user's activity history? What I would like to see is a way to search on all activity from a user. The general domain log lists things as they happen but there doesn't seem to be a way to search for related activity on just a single user. Something that would let me see from start to finish what a user was up to in a given time period. I am using the standard/secure version.

You can upgrade to the latest version 4.2.0, and use the new feature "Audit & Report".

Upgraded to version 4.2 now. Audit & Report gives me extra functionality bit I wish there was a bit more. For example, show the full path of files uploaded. downloaded, modified or deleted. Also, it would be nice to see a record of the user's directory traversals, such as they opened this folder, then that folder, so on and so forth. What you are doing in the Domain Log is great, it would be nice if we could apply the new filtering in Audit & Report to the Domain Log. Thanks!

When the mouse is over the file name, you will see the full path of that file.

Directory traversals won't be recorded currently (not all the user logs will be recorded in the audit database), so you can parse the original logs to analyze the whole user activities.
