Hey there! Have you ever found yourself wondering when a template was changed, a permission group was deleted, or a backup was retired in your Backup Radar account, and who did it?
You won't need Nancy Drew to crack this case: Activity Logs has your back.
The Activity Logs feature is an activity feed that stores an inventory of your account's actions (including when they happened and which user performed them).
Who can use this feature?
• Administrator users.
• Standard users (who have been granted access).
Follow the steps below to enable activity logs view access for Standard users, and configure and view your activity logs.
Enabling Activity Logs Access
If you're an Administrator user who would like to grant Activity Logs view access to a Standard user, follow these steps:
- In your Backup Radar account, navigate to Settings > User Management.
- Navigate to Permission Groups > Standard and click the Edit Permissions button next to the group you would like to modify.
Note: Default groups cannot be modified. To grant activity log access to someone in a default group that doesn't allow access, you'll need to change their permission group accordingly.
- Scroll down and click the Activity Logs toggle button.
- Scroll to the top and click Save Changes.
