About the Audit Logs Page

To access this page, select Administration > Audit Logs.

Use the Audit Logs page to view tasks that you have initiated either by using the Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) GUI or APIs. You can also export audit logs as a comma-separated values (CSV) file and purge audit logs after archiving them or without archiving them.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

  • View the details of various user-initiated tasks by selecting More > Details. You can also mouse over the audit log and click on the Detailed View icon. See Viewing the Details of an Audit Log.

  • Export audit logs as a CSV file—See Exporting Audit Logs.

  • Purge audit logs—See Purging Audit Logs (After Archiving or Without Archiving).

  • Search for audit logs by using keywords—Click the search icon and enter the search term in the text box and press Enter. The search results are displayed on the same page.

  • Sort and filter audit logs:


    Sorting and filtering is applicable only to some fields.

    • Click a column name to sort the audit logs based on the column name.

    • Click the filter icon and select whether you want to show or hide column filters or apply a quick filter. For example, you can use audit log filtering to track user accounts that were added on a specific date, track configuration changes across a particular type of device, view services that were provisioned on specific devices, monitor user login and logout activities over time, and so on.

  • Show or hide columns—Click the Show Hide Columns icon at the top right corner of the page and select the columns that you displayed on the Audit Logs page.
