I found that you can track files deletes by adding the follwoing to the web.config.

 

<add name="LogFileDeletesBooleanSwitch" value="1"/>

 

Are there other switches for things like login, checkout, get, etc.?

 

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt,

 

You can effectively see logins via logged license activity (Vault Workgroup and higher). And of course checkouts can be searched for (checkout user name) - checkin and adds can be seen via file history.

 

However there are not really any analogous switches to the delete logging - I think delete was a special case since there is reallly no evidence in the vault after a delete to indicate who performed the operation (or even if it was performed).

 

Hope this helps,

Paul

Thanks for the quick reply.  That answers my question.  I think we can find the information we need from the iislogs but I wanted to make sure there was not an out of the box way to do it first.  Monitoring file downloads is a security precaution that we wish to take.

Hi Matt,

 

I am interested in adding this switch to the web.config file. I am curious where the logging information is reported for the deletes? Is it in the standard ADMS log files?

 

Thanks,

Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

 

Yes - this information is in the standard server logs (vlog) .
