Use the Audit Log

The Audit Log allows you to track BigPanda configuration changes from within the UI.

When multiple users are working in the BigPanda platform, it’s vital to see historic information on system configuration changes. The Audit Log enables BigPanda admins to keep track of configuration change actions across the BigPanda platform. Using the Audit Log, admins can search for specific actions and filter the list of actions based on criteria such as timeframe, users, and action categories.

BigPanda audit logs reports on Create, Update, and Delete actions for these resources:

  • Enrichment V1 Custom Tags
  • Correlation Patterns
  • Environments
  • Users

Additional resources within BigPanda will be coming to the audit logs soon.

Audit Logs can also be accessed via API. See the Audit Logs API documentation for more information.
