Audit logs

Audit logs provide documentary evidence of the sequence of activities that have affected an operation or procedure.
Audit logs vary significantly between applications, but typically they capture events by recording what activity was performed, who performed the activity, at what time the activity was performed, and how the system responded.
Furthermore, these logs typically require elevated privileges in order to access them. Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications Admin roles are able to view and download audit logs through the Audits page.
Use audit logs to view histories for actions such as managing users, accounts, and budgets, and for viewing failure histories such as those associated with API authentication and authorization failures. Audit data identifies the following:
  • Who performed the function
  • When it was performed
  • Corresponding business objects
  • Data details
Use the Search text box or the Advanced Search function to search for audit logs by key word and other value, and filter those searches by date and time. Click a column heading to sort audit logs.
When working with a small screen, an inline horizontal scroll enables users to scroll horizontally to access all audit log columns.
Audit logs are always downloaded in English regardless of the browser or system locale being used.
