Complete Audit Trail

You can use the Audit trail to monitor the permission change activity done using the Entitlement Manager dashboard, without the need for Windows operating system-level auditing. The audit trail feature provides administrators with an easy way to revert permission changes in case of inadvertent issues.

A complete audit trail provides a mechanism to demonstrate adherence to governance policies.

Procedure

Use the following procedure to monitor the audit trail of files and folders on the share.

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Activate.

    The Activate page appears.

  2. Under Apps, click Entitlement manager.

    The Entitlement manager page appears.

  3. From the Select client list, select the client computer that contains the file or folder for which you want to view or change permissions.
  4. Click Apply.

    A list of files and folders that are on the client computer appears.

  5. On the left of the page, browse to or select the folder or file that you want to view or change permissions for.
  6. On the right of the page, to view the history of permissions and the status of the change permissions job, click the Activity tab.
  7. Click on each job to see the changes history.

    You can view the Time Stamp, Before change, After change,Job ID, Status, and the data owner who submitted the job.

  8. Click Revert this permission to undo the current permission and make the permission in the Before Change column as the current permission.

    The Revert Permission page appears.

  9. Click Revert after you verify the current permission and the permission that will be reverted to.
  10. Click Revert to this point to revert all permission changes starting from the current permission change in timestamp and later (including the current permission change).

    The subsequent summary screen shows the exact permissions we will be reverting back to. All permission changes starting from the time of revert operation will be reverted including the current permission.

    The Revert Permission page appears.

    You can view the exact permission that will be reverted to.
