Audit logs

Monitor key activities that your team members are performing

Introduction

The Audit logs track key activities that occur within your BrowserStack organization account. These logs can be used to get an analysis of how your BrowserStack account is being accessed and how members of your organization are using BrowserStack. This will enable security teams to diagnose problems or answer questions related to users’ product access, accounts, organization settings, etc.

Note: The audit log includes activities for up to 180 days. You can save activities (if required) before they pass 180 days by exporting the audit log periodically.

Audit logs access

Members with Owner permissions can view and export audit logs.

Note: Owner can also allow audit logs access to Admin(s) as well. Learn more
