Audit Trail / Jobs Screen

When you execute an action, for example when you resync network resources, an audit trail screen appears with a tree displaying the message traffic between Open Manage Network Manager and the device(s) the action addresses.

To see the details of any message, click on it, and those details appear in the lowest panel of this screen. If you click on a summary message (not a “leaf” on the tree), a graph appears displaying the duration for its component messages. Hover your cursor over each portion of the graph for more details.

The time for messages and logged in user initiating the action appear on the bar between the upper and lower screen, and an icon summarizing the action appears on its right. Click the second icon from the left to configure the amount of detail displayed in audit messages. Click the first (Refresh) icon to re-display messages if you re-configure the type(s) displayed.

To review the audit trail for recently completed processing, open the My Alerts tab in the lower left corner of the portal, and click the magnifying glass to the right of the message.Some audit trails display as many as three tabs for the Input (the command variables sent to the device), the Job Viewer with the message traffic to the device, and finally the Results of sending the messages to a device1. This lists devices on the left, and message traffic for a selected device on the right.

Close the audit trail viewer any time, and the action continues in the background. The the audit trail is archived in the portlet described in Audit Trail Portlet.
