Octane Audit Logs Should Contain Identifier of machine from which change was made (IP Address)

0 Votes

We had an issue where multiple artifacts from within Octane went "missing". Someone, either inadvertently or on purpose deleted them. The audit logs displayed the name of the user that reported the issue to us as the culprit, but she didn't actually delete the artifacts. Someone, either internally or externally, impersonated her and conducted the delete operations.

The audit logs should also display some kind of identifier of the machine where the changes were made (either some kind of location identifier or the IP address) so it can be further investigated and hopefully resolve.

Thanks

Thank you for your feedback,

you should be able to identify the machine IP of an action that was performed in the system using the audit api and server logs - please open a ticket to support so R&D can provide you guidelines how to extract this data.

in any case we plan to enhance the audit API so that it will include the session ID, and using the Audit API + Sessions API you should be able to get the machine IP without the need to go to server logs.

Regards,

Sigal
