Reviewing Audit Logs


Audit logs give you a view into exactly what is happening on your system. An audit log records every transaction and event.

You can view the audit log based on a date range.

Filters help you find information by showing only:

Changes made by a particular portal user, a subscriber, or the system (root) user.

Changes applied during bulk operations or to a particular device, portal user, or subscriber.

Here are definitions of a few key terms:

Portal users—Admins or CSRs who can make changes to device or subscriber records and to other portal users' accounts.

Subscribers—Customers who can make changes to their devices through the control panel. The audit log shows changes to local network and wireless settings, parental controls, and port forwarding.

System—Refers to the system, or root, user who can make changes to any device or user.

Device—Refers to a CPE device or a customer device attached to the CPE device's LAN.
