HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4


About this task

An auditing option helps track changes to the database and the plan.

For the database, all user modifications, except for the delta of the modifications, are logged. If an object is opened and saved, the action is logged even if no modification is made.

For the plan, all user modifications to the plan are logged. Actions are logged whether or not they are successful.

Audit files are logged to a flat text file on individual machines in the HCL Workload Automation network. This minimizes the risk of audit failure due to network issues and allows a straightforward approach to writing the log. The log formats are basically the same for both the plan and the database. The logs consist of a header portion which is the same for all records, an “action ID”, and a section of data which varies according to the action type. All data is stored in clear text and formatted to be readable and editable from a text editor such as vi or notepad.
