Auditing is a tool which tracks various details about changes made on the system and makes them available for later inspection – creating so-called audit trails.
Audit trails are typically used to raise accountability during internal investigations, and play a key role in good internal business controls. They provide proof of compliance and operational integrity, but also allow you to identify areas of non-compliance.
Our audit trails allow you to inspect:
- WHO changed something
- WHAT was changed
- WHEN it was changed
Auditing is currently implemented for the following areas:
- PIM (Products, Groups, Shops)
- Ecommerce (Groups & Shops)
Auditing is enabled from Settings > System > Solution settings – please note that enabling auditing may lead to a significantly larger database.
Once auditing has been enabled, auditing reports may be examined using the Auditing button (Figure 1.1) found in:
- Shops and warehouse edit
- Product group & warehouse group edit
- Product edit (PIM only).
Reports are shown in a list format with a variety of relevant information, as illustrated in Figure 1.2. The list can be searched and filtered, making it easier to find a particular audit record - and the export button exports all entries matched by the current filtering as an Excel compatible CVS file.
Each list item can be opened and examined in more detail – this makes it possible to see exactly what was changed when this record was created (Figure 1.3).
