Audit Logs


Overview

Audit Logs are documents that record changes or actions occurring in a system. Applications Manager lets you view Audit Log information, where you can keep track of all the events occurring in your account, and aids you to identify the changes made in your profile within specified periods of time. It documents the list of actions performed by the user along with the timestamps.
