All operations targeted at a QPR ScoreCard model can be recorded into a log file called "SCSAudit.txt" located in the folder that can be defined in the General tab of the Common settings section in the QPR Configuration Manager utility. To enable logging, launch QPR Configuration Manager, open QPR ScoreCard Server settings, open the General tab and check the Enable audit log checkbox.

 

The Structure of the Log File

 

When the audit trail writing is enabled, a session entry will be written into the log file. In each entry there is a header, event, and footer section.

The header section starts the session, and it will be written into the log file when the ScoreCard Application Server is started. Header contains a time stamp, such as the following:
