The "Event details" window

Window example

The following example shows the detailed information on an administration event related to the creation of a time slice.


The Events Details window gives you more information on a selected event. Compared with the Audit main window, it contains two additional pieces of information:

  • The Error code field.
  • The Description field.
  • If the event is related to a group, an organizational unit or a directory identified as an audit population: the Population field.

The other fields display the same information as the Audit main window.

NOTE: The User's audit ID field corresponds to the Audit ID column of the Audit main window.



Error code

This field informs you on the cause of the error.


This area gives more information on the event (for a detailed description of this field for administration events, see Section Detailed information on the audit administration events).


This field only appears for events related to a group, an organizational unit or a directory that has been identified as an audit population.
It displays the audit population label of the group/organization/directory.

Detailed information on the audit administration events


This section focuses on the information displayed by two specific fields of the Audit window:

  • The Event Type field of the Event Details window (which corresponds to the Event Code column of the Audit main window).
  • The Description field of the Event Details window.
The Event field

The Event Type field is built using the type of the audited object and the administration action on this object. Just combine one entry of the Object Type column with one entry of the Administration Operation column below to get the list of possible values that can appear in the Event Type field of an administration event:

NOTE: The aim of the following table is to show you as many combinations as possible, but it is not exhaustive.
