Admin Audit Trails Report

The Admin Audit Trails Report displays a list of operations that Phoenix administrators performed on the Phoenix Management Console. This report allows cloud administrators to monitor all the operations performed by all Phoenix cloud, organization, and group administrators. You can enable Phoenix to send the Admin Audit Trails report to the configured cloud administrators on the first day of every month. Additionally, the cloud administrators can apply filters to create a custom report for specific operations and download it using the Admin Audit Trails page. For more information, see Download a report. Phoenix generates an empty Audit Trail Report if no data is available for a particular month.

The Admin Audit Trails Report provides the following details of the administrator activities:

  • The administrator name.
  • The action performed by the administrator. For example, Configure for backup.
  • The entity on which the action was performed. For example, VMware-VM.
  • The resource type. For example, VMware.
  • The organization associated with the entity. For example, Org_Boston.
  • The IP address of the resource.
  • The timestamp of the activity performed. For example, Mar 03, 2018 09:33:43.
  • The action details, such as the old and the updated values for each parameter.
