What is an audit log?
An audit log provides documented evidence of the sequence of activities undertaken by merchants and affiliate partners in your database through a chronological set of records. Post Affiliate Pro gives you a comprehensive overview with timestamps of all operations, procedures, events, actions made, and more.
What are the benefits of utilizing the audit log?
Log audits are used internally by network engineers, help desk staff, software developers, and administrators to boost performance, increase accountability, and stabilize systems. Maintaining log files gives you historical insight into activity so you don’t miss anything.
Keeping track of how often affiliates and other merchants access files and documents can help companies become more aware of who is accessing their systems (and what is being done to them). The creation of a complete audit log would enable companies to keep track of and follow who within the organization was accessing different files and how they used them. You can also use audit logs to learn about affiliate activity, which could be used to boost efficiency, security, and performance. For example: A commission was approved and you aren’t sure why. The answer may be found within audit logs. Is a commission type disabled in your campaign? You can see who disabled it in your audit logs.
Benefits of audit logs
Besides monitoring and tracking merchant/affiliate movements within your Post Affiliate Pro panel, audit logs can be used for several other purposes. For instance, if an error was made in editing a document, or if your organization for some reason lost a bulk of data, an audit trail would allow you to look back at older versions of existing files.
This capability is the key to data correction or reconstruction. An audit trail can also help an organization detect unauthorized system access, failures, vulnerabilities, and more. If your business utilizes Post Affiliate Pro to facilitate affiliate marketing, promotion, sharing, collaboration, or storage of various files, documents, and data, then an audit log would be an invaluable aid to the security of the system.
