Audits

Overview

Audits allow administrators to see a summary of activities performed in Cascade CMS by a particular User, Group, or Role or on a particular asset. Start/End Date and Audit Type filters are provided to help refine the audit trail.

The record for each event in the audit trail includes:

  • User - the username of the user who performed the activity.
  • Time - the time of the activity. Hover over this entry in this column for an exact date/time.
  • Action - the type of action performed (login, edit, publish, etc.).
  • Information - the information about that action such as whether the asset was edited or published, the IP address of the computer from which the user logged in, and/or a link to the location of the particular asset.
Audit trail records can be selected by clicking the checkbox next to each record. Selected records can be deleted by clicking the Delete trash can icon at the top of the list.
