Figure 1: Audit Tab

The Audit tab charts show how the workspace has been used over time. You can change the timeframe covered using the dropdown menu at the top right of the chart.

  • Access Levels shows the number of distinct users who have accessed a workspace over a period of time.
  • Files shows how many files were created and their file types.
  • Dataset Uploads shows the successes and failures of loading CSV files into the platform.
 

Audit table

Beneath the graphical display a table details all workspace events which have occurred, for example when users have accessed the workspace, added notes or deleted files.

The table displays 10 rows of information by default, however this can be expanded to show up to 500 rows using the 10 per page, grabbed on 24.01.17, using XAP version 1.19.1 2740-8759a, from https://edcvaatest04.aridhiatest.net/#/workspaces/1152/audit dropdown. It can be sorted by clicking on a column header and be filtered by clicking on a value. The table can also be scrolled through using the page number or Next > buttons below the table.

Clicking on an individual user name in the Who column limits the table to only show audit events involving that specific user. Likewise, any column can be filtered by any value within it, e.g. file_access within the What column. After filters have been applied, simply select the ‘Clear Filter’ command to revert the table back to an unfiltered state.

Each interaction is assigned a unique identifier number, seen in the Identifier column, which ensures accurate monitoring of workspace transactions.
