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.
