Audit reporting

Use audit reports to view information about the report, dashboard, and story activities in the logging database.

Audit reports provide information about access to reports, dashboards, and stories. This information is recorded in the logging database when a report, dashboard, or story is created, run, or modified. It includes the name and location of the report, dashboard, or story, name of the user who ran or modified it, and the time and date when this happened.

The possible uses of audit information include:

  • Capacity planning
  • Licensing conformance
  • Performance monitoring
  • Identifying unused content

IBM® Cognos® Analytics extended samples include sample audit reports. For more information, see the Samples for IBM Cognos Analytics Guide.
