DXM WordPress Audit Logging creates a complete list of all actions made by user within WordPress.
The logs are taken for user and system activity across the Development, Staging and Production environments.
Logs are recorded from the time the feature is enabled onwards. The feature is enabled by Kurtosys Administrators.
The Logging feature has a simple UI to allow you to find information about user actions in the system.
The table headers:
Instance – did the user make the change on Development, Staging or Production
Site – which WordPress site the change was made on
Action – A summary of the action taken. If several actions were made before a save, it may only reflect one action in the description, you will need to look further into the log to see the other changes.
Username – which user made the change
Timestamp – when was the change made
The Search bar: Allows you to search through the “Action” column. It does not currently search through or filter the other columns.
“Filter by instance” drop down: allows you to filter on logs created on Development, Staging or Production.
Detailed logs: The “Action” Column is just a short summary of the changes, you can click on the specific log and you will be provided with additional information. When you click the log, a flyout will open and show the extra information. Depending on the type of log, the logged information will be displayed differently.
What gets logged?
The logging covers specific user actions taken within WordPress. The current feature covers about 75% of actions a user can undertake, and will increase as we further develop the feature.
Additionally, where features already have their own associated logging, such as Sharing and Elementor, the logs will remain with those features and not be included within the WordPress logs.
