Configure the Audit trail module

To configure the Audit trail module, in Sitefinity's backend navigate to Administration » Settings » Advanced » Audit.

  • To enable the default simple JSON logger, select the EnableJsonLogging checkbox.
    This stores the Audit trail records in JSON format in textual log files. The files are stored in ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Logs. The files' names are formatted as Audit*.log.
  • To enable IP logging, select the EnableIpAddressLogging checkbox.
    This includes the IP address of the user for whom activities are being logged.

    IMPORTANT: If IP address logging is not compliant with your privacy policy or the regulation affecting your site, you must disable it.

  • To enable integration with Elasticsearch and Kibana, in ElasticSearchUri field, enter the root URL of your Elasticsearch site.
