QMC Change Logs

Hello everyone,

I was trying to find the audit logs for QMC. I believe it exists somewhere on this path: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Repository but not quite sure where exactly to look for.

On C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Repository\Trace, there exists audit logs mcname_Audit_Repository.txt

Also on C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Repository\Audit, there are several files regarding auditing: mcname_AuditActivity_Repository.txt and mcname_AuditSecurity_Repository.txt

I am not quite sure which logfile to check to see the what changes are made in data connections tab in qmc.

(We are using QS Multi Node Environment)

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks.

Hi @elifapa 
QMC is hosted on the repository service of the central node, so the folders you mentionned is the right place to check. 
The audit repository log at info level should capture some changes, example here when changing ownership of a data connection

4	20211128T110643.950+0100	INFO	SPBAR-DBJ1	Audit.Repository.Repository.Core.Repository.DataConnectionRepository	53	5753b102-a53d-4645-8b6b-ce0be9eade90	aaaa\QlikSense	Owner changed from INTERNAL\sa_repository to aaaa\alexis	c0de97df-d221-4897-fc58-71de596e8014	Update	"Mydomain"	"UserID"	47a1cfd8-f70e-4a98-a00d-00fca6c8e253	90670d1ab7a98f84c10da60866c8a8500fcbcede


"Mydomain" & "userID" will show the user who made this change. 
 
I would start with this log file. 

If what you are looking after is not recorded in this log, the next would be to set system repo,  and audit repo in DEBUG, but note that it will mainly record API calls and show metadata in this log, so it won´t be easy to track and read. 

If more is needed I would suggest to create a feature request through ideation:

Hope this helps
