Application Activity Report and Access Logs

Activity Report

The Activity Report provides a summary and details of any actions performed on the application since the last automatic maintenance window.

The Activity Report, which is automatically generated for each day, enables Service Administrators to understand application usage. It also helps streamline application design by identifying calculation scripts and user requests that impact application performance. Information contained in this report includes:

  • User information, such as the number of users who signed into the application each day, each hour, last seven days, and last 30 days
  • Percentage of requests that took more than 10 seconds to complete
  • Ranking of requests by duration
  • Ranking of requests that took more than 10 seconds to complete
  • Number of application design changes that occurred over the reporting period

Note:

The Application Activity Report uses the administrator's time zone, which is set in the Maintenance Window screen.

The Activity Report provides details of any actions performed on the application.
About Access Logs

You can also download a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file that provides detailed information on the IP addresses that accessed the service and the activities performed. The Access log is generated each day. The access log provides visibility into Financial Reporting activity, including date and time, the resources that users accessed, duration of user activity, the IP addresses from which users connected to the service, and the actions that users performed in the service.
