Some organizations require audit logging to be enabled for all server applications to track settings changes made to these applications. SMSMSE does not have this functionality built in, but logging can be enabled to determine which user made what changes at what time.
This process involves several steps:
To monitor the application event log:
To enable output of xml files from the console to the filesystem:
Warning: This settings change will cause the SMSMSE console to output all details of console to server communications, and if not deleted, these files may eventually fill the hard drive. It is recommended to periodically clear the contents of this folder.
To monitor what settings changes were made:
By correlating the timestamp of the X_Request_Push.xml files and the timestamp of the Settings Changed events in the Event Log, an administrator can determine what settings were changed by which user at what time in SMSMSE.
