Audit history of who deactivated users in a workspace

We recently had a large number of users (~50) deactivated across multiple workspaces, which caused confusion and concern for our end users who are trying to get their work done in Octane. We have asked MF support if there is a log or audit trail to tell us who deactivated a user as the volume of users and affected workspaces was curious and worrisome. There is no such log. 

Although the volume of times this information is needed is low, the severity of not having the information available can cause lack of confidence in the tool and its administrators when we cannot explain instances such as mentioned above. Without this information, we also cannot take steps to prevent it from happening again.

Thank you for your feedback, 

In Octane latest release (15.0.20) we have added History tab for the user entity so that administrator can track actions done for a user (such as activate/deactivate). This is available for all levels of actions on users: site, space and workspace.

Very soon we are going to provide also activity log tab which will include all actions done by users for simple auditing needs (as this data is available today via audit API).
