Auditing user actions in RSpace is possible because most user actions are logged. Actions performed on documents can be found and displayed using the audit trail search interface. To do this, click the Auditing link in the MyRSpace top-level menu. In the Auditing interface, your options as a user are limited to selecting one or more actions to include in the audit, and to defining a date range of when those actions were logged. Clicking the ‘Get Audit Report’ button without setting an action or date filter will give a report of all actions over all time the user has been active. In the report, the resources where the action was performed are shown as links which can be clicked to open the document.
Users with other roles have different auditing options based on their status:
- Regular users can search over their own activities
- PIs can search over the activities of any or all of their group members
