Manage audit logs

Audit logs provide auditing trails for data plane APIs on Azure Data Manager for Energy. With audit logs, you can tell:

  • Who performed an action
  • What was the action
  • When was the action performed
  • Status of the action

For example, when you “Add a new member” to the users.datalake.admins entitlement group using entitlements API, you're able to see this information in audit logs.
