Generating Audit Reports

Three audit reports—Security Reports, Artifact Reports, and Config Report—can be generated. The Security Report displays audit information related to the security tasks for which auditing is configured. Artifact Report presents information on the artifacts that were imported or exported using Lifecycle Management.

Functional Administrators can generate and view audit reports to track historical changes to the security data.

Note:

Auditing must be configured before you can generate audit reports. See Auditing Security Activities and Lifecycle Management Artifacts.

  1. Access Shared Services Console as a Functional Administrator.

  2. Select Administration, and then Audit Reports.

  3. Select an option:
