We want to find the logs/trace which display/shows actual activity (like insert update or modification on any field values) carried out by the users.

In case if you know about it then please reply

Please make a note that we want to search the data from last one month logs.

JP.

      Hi,

      Thanks for early reply and also for reminding for the bonus points.

      According to your suggestion we had created Audit logs and on that bases system generated the logs.

      But the logs are shown from the date it was created and not for the past records.

      Also I found that after generating the logs we have to delete the logs (with sm18) but what are the parameters need to set to delete the logs?

      We want something where it shows all the activities of the user had done in a day and from there we would like to find out according to the requirement.

      Thanks and regards,

      JP

    Hi Jigar,

    You can audit perticular user using T-code SM19 and you can view audit logs in SM20. you can delete audit logs in SM18.

    1. Activation of audit

    goto sm19 --> Dynamic configuration --> change --> select filter 1 and specify details and which type of audit event you want. --> activate audit.

    Once complition of audit you have to deactive audit.

    2. Audit log

    goto SM20 --> specify user details and Reread audit log.

    3. Delition of logs

    goto sm18 --> specify no.of days and execute.

    Regards,

    Suraj

    Hello Jigar,

    Sm19 is an option but there is an restriction on the number of users which can be traced using it. So if you want to run the trace for all users this is not an option.

    You can alternatively find these details using transactions STAD/STAT,ST03/ST03.

    Regards.

      Hi,

      Thanks for the reply.

      I had already tried this option and with st03n, I am able to find out day wise, month wise data.

      But it is not what actually I am looking for.

      for e.g. if I search xxx transaction accessed by n no of users in a month then it is giving the user id but it is not showing on what date/day & time users had access the transaction.

      Also I want what kind of changes or activity they had carried out that is insert, update change (with values).

      Even if I search at the user level I am getting the same level.

      Regards,

      JP
