    Exporting Audit Logs in Security Director

    You can export audit logs, as a comma-separated values (CSV) file, without purging the logs from the database. You can then view the exported audit logs in a separate application and analyze the logs as needed.

    To export audit logs:

    1. Select Monitor > Audit Logs.

      The Audit Logs page appears.

    2. Click the Export button.

      The Export Audit Logs page appears.

    3. Specify the audit logs to be exported according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.
    4. Click OK to close the Export Audit Logs page.

      You are returned to the Audit Logs page. After a few seconds, a dialog box pops up.

    5. Select whether to open the file directly or save the file to your client.

      The Export Audit Logs page appears.

    6. Click OK.

      The file is opened or saved depending on the option that you chose.
