Ariba Audit Log - Event Types

0 Kudos


I am currently trying to identify certain user activities in Ariba Procurement. I see in the core administration section that the audit log allows filtering by different events, but I'm having a hard time finding documentation associated with those event types (For example, what does or what information does the event Admin Access, Administrator, General, Integration, etc recolect)

Is there any official documentation from SAP Ariba about these events and what information do they log in?

Approval REST Integration: External approvals made through an Application Programming Interface (API).

CDS Sync Verifier: Validation of common data server (CDS) synchronization; provides information about all CDS related activity.

The most commonly used filters for the audit log include Date, Event Type, Real User, and Effective User. Real User is the user who actually performed the action, while Effective User is the on behalf of user.
