VIP Dashboard

Audit Log

The Audit Log panel provides visibility into what is happening in an organization. An audit trail of all application management actions allows compliance with internal and external regulatory standards, and provides insight for debugging, security, and incident investigation. 

Audit Logs are immutable and the reported data is retained for the lifetime of each customer.

The Audit Log panel is located in the Organization view of the VIP Dashboard.

Prerequisite

To access the Audit Log panel a user’s Org role must be set to “Member” or higher.
