Audit logging provides a way to view metadata associated with your databases, database folders and documents by tracking information associated with individual document IDs.  

Note: Audit logging (logging the event history for databases, database folders and documents) is only available for databases under Alchemy Advanced Server control.  

Accessing Audit Logs

Audit Logs are accessible through the Database Log and History tabs located on the Profile pane under the Contents and Records Management tabs in the Tree View pane.

Data provided by the Audit Logs

Database build information, such as how much data was built and the configuration of the build settings.

DataGrabber operations, such as information about the source and destination files and how many records were written.

Database use history, such as the date and time of the action, the product name, event description, and the user name.

Event descriptions contained in the various audit logs will display in the language setting for the client computer, not the installation language selection.

Audit logging stores information in the SQL tables created when you install Alchemy and are accessible for printing or other manipulation through SQL Reporting.

Audit logging is also available for your custom Alchemy applications created using the Alchemy API, which records the same information as in the standard Alchemy applications.

Note: Error messages related to Alchemy processes are written to the Windows Event log. To view Alchemy error messages you need to access the Windows Event log. See your Windows documentation for information about accessing the Windows Event log.
