As we strive to continuously enhance user experience, security, and the overall IoT cloud platform here at TagoIO, upgrading our audit log system is one way to help us achieve those goals.
What are audit logs?
One way to define Audit logs is that they are a chronological record of system activities. Users can use the log entries for a variety of purposes, such as keeping track of user activity and monitoring system performance.
Audit logs can also serve as an essential tool for finding when a bug or a problem started. In order to ensure accurate record keeping, audit logs should be regularly reviewed and managed by an authorized individual or team within an organization.
Overall, audit logs provide valuable information for both daily operations and unexpected events, making them an essential component of a well-managed system.
The benefits of improved audit logs on TagoIO
As a system administrator, it’s critical to have an accurate record of all activity on TagoIO for various reasons, such as compliance with regulations, as well as being able to track down errors or issues. Thankfully, improved audit logs can provide this information in an easy-to-access format.
Not only can they track user logins and changes made to devices or dashboards, but audit logs also offer Scale and Starter users the ability to search and filter by specific criteria. By selecting your specific criteria, pertinent information can be quickly located, saving time and potentially preventing complications in the future.
Improved audit logs on TagoIO are a valuable asset for any organization looking to ensure accountability within their IoT system.
