Improvement of log activity

Gerald F 3 weeks ago in Feature requests • updated by Vlad R 6 days ago 3

If I don't not make an error, it is not possible to define for the activity
logs, a maximum period of retention, nor a level of detail (for
example do not log each time a user moves a file, or open it, ...).

Moreover when we delete the activity logs, it would be nice to start with the 

end (so the oldest) and not the beginning (the most recent).

Under review
a level of detail (for example do not log each time a user moves a file, or open it, ...).

FileRun logs most actions. Would you like to limit the actions logged? If so, you would like to exclude actions, or limit to certain actions?


Moreover when we delete the activity logs, it would be nice to start with the end (so the oldest) and not the beginning (the most recent).

Not sure I understand. The existing option "Number of days to keep the user activity log entries:" should clear old not new entries. Is it not the case?

For the first, I think second option is more simple, i.e. limit FileRun logs to a list of certain actions.


For the second, I was not very clear. The problem is

- When we go to activity log panel and click on 'Archive Log' button : the most recent logs are cleared, so that should be the oldest ones first. (with 2000 user, I have more than a million entries into the table df_logs).


Thank you

The archive log action is archiving to CSV files 30,000 records at a time. It couldn't process millions entries at once. But I see now what you mean, it indeed takes the newer ones first, instead of taking the older records. This will be fixed in the next update. In the meantime, if just deleting the activity log entries is what you wish to do, you can safely do it from the database. Or export it from the database to CSV and emptying the table.
