    Article summary

    The Audit Report option enables you to view all administrative actions and authorization requests within the selected Environment. Using the Audit Reports, you can trace and resolve the origins of issues that may arise. The following Audit reports can be generated:

    • Administration Audit Report - includes create, edit, and delete functions for each administrative service, as well as user actions, such as login and changing passwords.

    • Authorization Audit Report - includes runtime auditing, such as authorization requests and corresponding responses. The Authorization Report captures the requests that are received by the Authorization Platform and the response provided. The requests are for Authorization details and the responses include the relevant Assets. The information can be used to see why someone does not have access to certain assets or functionality as the Administrator can see the details of the request and the response. The audit records every login to the system as an entry (request-response).

    Note: Authorization Audit Report includes only authorization by the PlainID Cloud PDP.
    For authorization audit of customer hosted PDPs (hybrid PAA or fully customer hosted deployment), refer to the Authorization Audit Report article.

    To generate a Report:

    1. Click the three vertical dots next to the Environment name. A drop-down list of currently available reports is displayed. Options are Administration Audit Reports and Authorization Audit Reports.
    2. Select the desired report. The unfiltered results for the last 7 days are displayed.
    3. Define Filters as detailed Report Filters, as needed.
    4. Click Run Report. The modified report results based on the filters you selected are displayed.

    Report Filters

    Report filters enable you to focus on various aspects of the report, for example a specific period of time, events that occurred in one area of the Platform (for example, Workspaces).

    When using filters, the displayed results of the report are cumulative. This means that if you specify a fixed date period, the results will show all events that happened during that period of time. If you add a filter for a specific Action, the displayed results will show all events for that Action during the specified period of time.

    Configuring Display Columns

    By default, not all of the available columns are shown when you select a report. The number of displayed columns and the total number of columns in the report are indicated on the Column Display button on each report.

    To customize the report display:

    1. On the selected report screen, click Column Display. A list of all available columns is displayed. Columns that are currently visible have the checkbox next to them enabled.
      • To remove columns from the table: clear the column’s checkbox.
      • To make additional columns visible in the table: enable the column’s checkbox.
    2. Click outside the drop-down window. The window closes and the table is refreshed.
