Audit like a Pro with our revamped Audit log
Update: In Jira 8.8.1 we've added new events to track installed and uninstalled apps and created and removed application links. Learn more
Can audit logs be fun to work with? Our revamped Audit log sure is. First of all, it’s the way it looks. With the clear, user-friendly interface, you can easily find your way around it, adjust the settings, and filter the events. But as usual, it’s not all about the looks. It’s also what you can do with it. And there is plenty to talk about:
→ You are now in control: you can decide which events are logged and how long you want to keep them
→ You get full transparency: you can filter the events, expand each for further details, and export the audit log if necessary
→ You free up your auditing schedule: by getting an audit log that’s clear and categorized, you don’t need to spend time browsing through piles of events.
Check it out yourself by going to Administration> System > Audit log and experience the new era of auditing.
We migrate up to 10 million records from your old audit log to the new one.
