    Audit Trail Logs History Inforamtion

    I have done several google searches and even several searches in the Our Umbraco forum which have resulted in little to no information about the Audit Trail functionality in Umbraco.

    I have a couple of questions about the Umbraco v7 Audit Trail Functionality:

    1. Can someone please help me understand more about the Umbraco Audit Trail basic functionality?
    2. Is there any default functionality around trimming or deleting these audit trails in Umbraco?

    I have a client that wants to be able to query audit log data for all time of their website once they go live in production. My hope is that this is the default functionality of Umbraco but please help me understand how I might change this if this is not the case.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Paul

    If you right click a content node in Umbraco then you should be able to see the "Audit trail" option in the context menu that appears.

    If you click on it you'll simply see a log of actions that has been made by, which user at what date etc.

    These data are of course available in the database so it should be possible to somehow get hold of them for other purposes like displaying them on a dashboard or so.

    I don't think that there is any trimming/deleting of these entries out of the box.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    HI Jan, I am having a similar type of requirement where in I have to show audit information for some fields of a node. I want to show previous and current value specific to language and version along with Timestamp when this change happened and who changed it(logged in user) any idea how to fetch it from Umbraco DB and show on screen.

    Thanks, Jan. So I don't suppose there is any documentation about this feature or details about what it tracks and when?

    Hi Faiyazul,

    Did you find any solution? I have similar requirement of enabling audit trail for some fields in my node.

    Hi there

    I realize that Faiyazul's question to me is like 2 years old and somehow I missed to reply.

    But reading what is being asked for I'm thinking that the Rollback feature is exactly that? Admittedly the interface for the rollback feature could be more friendly but it holds a timestamp of the changes done to a page over time and it's possible to rollback to the site to a previous state etc.

    Is this what you're after?

    Hi Jan,

    Thank you for the quick reply. Basically i have fields for Status and Comment in my content node with other fields. I want to enable chronology kind of functionality for Status and Comment fields so that admin users can identify what and when changes made to these fields.

    I checked on Rollback functionality, is there any way to get required data from that and put it in the same node? I also need to get this data through API then after.

    Sorry...I'm afraid I am a bit clueless about how to approach what you have in mind. I work as a frontend developer on a daily basis and it's been a while since I have been familiar with the backoffice API's and how to extend/modify existing stuff.

    But hopefully someone else with more knowledge about this will chime in.
