Repository Administrators have the ability to run a report of all administrative changes made by administrators.
To request an activity log, In the upper-right corner, select your name > Admin > Activity Logs:
The Activity Logs page will appear as follows:
In the Log drop-down box, select Administration Activity. For a user-level activity log, select the Consolidated Activity option.
The email address defaults to the current user’s email address. The date range defaults to the first and last dates of the previous month. The beginning date cannot be more than 90 days prior to the current date, and the end date cannot be later than the current date or earlier than the beginning date.
After making necessary edits, select Request to submit a request.
The activity records are sent as an XML attachment in an email message. We suggest that you open the file in Excel or a database program such as SQL or Access to have the data in an easy-to-read format.
Note: If you have not downloaded the logging data within the 90-day window, it is no longer available prior to that. So you should download a report at least every 90 days in order to not miss data that has been generated for the logging file.
The Administrative Activity report or log will include a list of certain administrative changes that have taken place.
These actions include:
- Add a new user
- Remove a user
- Change a user's membership type (external/internal)
- Cabinet administrators can add external members checkbox
- Create new group
- Delete group
- Cabinet deletion (logs the user and the time)
- Add a new cabinet admin
- Allow permanent deletion of documents option
- Add or remove a group to the groups allowed to use the multi-doc download option
Other administrative changes may be included in the log in future updates.
