Audit Events

Abstract

Check out this article and learn more details about the Audit Events, which Events are of Audit type and where the user can find them.

Audit Events are occurrences triggered on basis of sensitive operations performed by a user or auditable actions.

As these occurrences are triggered automatically each time an auditable operation takes place, their scope is to help i4connected administrators to identify system activities and extract information about each record that is subjected to an audit examination.

Audit Events list

The list of Audit Events can be viewed in the Audit Events panel by all users having at least the View events permission enabled.

The Audit events panel

Quite similar with the Events panel, the Audit events list can be filtered as follows:

  • filtering by audit event name;

  • filtering by event priority;

  • filtering by event type;

  • filtering by event group.

Further on, the user can manually update the list of Audit events by clicking the Refresh toolbar button.

The Refresh button

Users having the View audit log permission enabled can also open the listed audit events in Edit mode and change the following settings:

Edit_audit_event.jpg

The Edit audit event panel

  • Alias - the friendly name of the event. If set, it will be displayed by default instead of the Name.

  • Description - the description of the event.

  • Event cause - the description of the cause of the current event.

  • Event effect - the description of the effect that the current event has.

  • Event repair - the description of the mitigation procedure for the current event.

  • Help link - the link leading to the documentation that provides help for the current event.

  • Enable event queries - enables additional query processing for the event. The user should enable this setting only if it is necessary to run additional queries in the post processing pipeline for this event.

  • Acknowledge interval - enables an acknowledge monitoring interval.

    • Insert Acknowledge Interval - allows the user to set the acknowledge interval (number of Days, Hours and Minutes).

  • Ownership interval - enables an ownership monitoring interval.

    • Insert Ownership Interval - allows the user to set the ownership interval (number of Days, Hours and Minutes).

  • Close interval - enables a close monitoring interval.

    • Insert Close Interval - allows the user to set the close interval (number of Days, Hours and Minutes).

  • Event priority - the event priority. The priority can be chosen using the Priorities panel.

  • Event type - the event type. The type can be selected from the Event types panel.

  • Event group - the group to which the event belongs. The group can be selected by marking the radio-button of the desired group. Due to the inheritance mechanism, selecting a derived group enables the assignment of the parent group as well.

To preserve the changes, the user can click the Save button. Otherwise, the Close button will close the panel without storing any changes.

Important

Unlike an Event, the Audit events are limited from management point of view, regardless of the currently logged in user permissions set.

  • It is not possible to change the name of an audit event, while in the Edit event panel;

  • it is not possible to delete an audit event;

  • it is not possible to manually create an audit event, as they are automatically generated by the system and listed in the Audit events panel;

  • it is not possible to manually trigger an audit event, as the audit events are triggered automatically by the system on basis of various Login, Logout and CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations.
