New Audit Logs

Accessible through Settings, the Audit Log shows a full history of user activities on the Infobip web interface and allows for faster issues resolution. This industry standard comes in handy when you need to troubleshoot or investigate an event. Events are grouped by Account, Username, IP Address, and Description, and they can be filtered by range (last 15 minutes, today, yesterday, this week, etc.), specific date and time.

Audit Log

Accessible through Settings, the Audit Log shows a full history of user activities on the Infobip web interface and allows for faster issues resolution. This industry standard comes in handy when you need to troubleshoot or investigate an event. Events are grouped by Account, Username, IP Address, and Description, and they can be filtered by range (last 15 minutes, today, yesterday, this week, etc.), specific date and time.

The Audit Log brings:

  • Full transparency on what has happened on the account and when.
  • The basis for an even more proactive approach to anomalies related to actions on your account, with an aim to prevent hacking.
  • Perform events auditing on your own, without help from the Infobip Support.

This feature will be available for all users with the Account Manager role. If a user does not see Audit Log, they can contact their Account Manager.
