NOTE: Operator Auditing will log the actual username that is logged in to the Operator to the Database

Audit Agent

The Audit Agent can be used to log value changes from an Agent Server perspective.

  1. First specify a Database connection. We will update the Global Connection String which is used by various agents if a database is not explicitly set. This can be done in the Advanced Agent Server configuration:

    The Audit Agent will log any changes to this database in these tables:

NOTE: The Audit Agent will log any value change, but will use the user which is running the Agent Server to provide user details (for example the user under which the Service is running will be logged in the Database)
