The Audit Log report provides a summary of audit log entries. Similar to the Audit Log page itself, the report can be filtered and sorted according to various criteria, such as time range, the user associated with the activity, and keywords.
Note: How long the audit log entries remain available depends on the “alert history storage” level associated with your LogicMonitor account. To save these records or a filtered subset for historical purposes, you can schedule recurring Audit Log reports. For more information, see About Audit Logs.
Configuring an Audit Log Report
To add a new Audit Log Report:

Audit Log Settings

You can use the Report Schedule settings to schedule recurring reports that will email the results to the configured addresses.
