Viewing and exporting the audit log
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Web protection software provides an audit trail showing which administrators have accessed the Web module of the Forcepoint Security Manager, as well as any changes made to policies and settings. This information is available only to Super Administrators who are granted policy permissions (see Super Administrator permissions).
Delegated administrators have significant control over the Internet activities of their managed clients. Monitoring their changes through the audit log enables you to ensure that this control is handled responsibly and in accordance with your organization's acceptable use policies.
Use the Status > Audit Log page to view the audit log, and to export selected portions of it to an Excel spreadsheet (XLS) file, if desired.
Audit records are saved for 60 days. To preserve audit records longer than 60 days, use the export option to export the log on a regular basis. Exporting does not remove records from the audit log.
When the Audit Log page opens, the most recent records are shown. Use the scroll bar and the paging buttons above the log to view older records.
The log displays the following information. If an item is truncated, click the partial entry to display the full record in popup window.
Not all items are shown for all records. For example, the role is not displayed for logon and logoff records and the Previous and Current values for a password change are left blank.
To export audit log records:
1.
Choose Last 60 days to export the entire audit log file.
2.
If Microsoft Excel is installed on the machine, the exported file opens. Use options in Excel to save or print the file.
If Microsoft Excel is not installed, follow the on-screen instructions to either locate the software or save the file.
