Operations related to user administration and user rights in QPR Metrics Server can be recorded into a log file called "SCSUserAudit.txt". If logging is enabled, the log file is generated to the "Audit" folder under the log folder that can be defined in the Server log settings of the Common section in the QPR Configuration Manager utility. To enable logging, launch QPR Configuration Manager, select Server log settings from the Common section, and select Basic logging enabled from the User audit log settings for QPR Metrics Server. By default, the logging is off.

 

The changes audited for user administration include changing model specific rights for the selected user(s) or group(s). The changes audited for user rights include the access level rights for a specific object(s) or branch(es).
