Configure SharePoint to track resource activity

To gather and report on resource activity in SharePoint, ensure that SharePoint native auditing is properly configured for any resources of interest. You can also optionally install the SharePoint Auditing Monitor farm solution to obtain activity for events not available in the native SharePoint auditing system.

Configure auditing on SharePoint farms

You can enable auditing at different levels in the SharePoint farm. It is recommended that you enable auditing at the site collection level to ensure that all events are collected. The methods available for configuring auditing vary depending on the SharePoint edition installed. Sometimes, you can use Central Administration; in all cases you can use Windows PowerShell. It is recommended that you enable all SharePoint native events to ensure maximum coverage for data governance activities, but you may choose a smaller set to improve performance if necessary.

Consult your Microsoft documentation for complete information on configuring auditing.

Install the QAM.SharePoint.Auditing.Monitor Farm Solution

If you install the SharePoint farm solution, you can supplement the events captured by native auditing. Install “QAM.SharePoint.Auditing.Monitor.wsp” from the agent installation folder (by default %ProgramFiles%\One Identity\One Identity Manager Data Governance Edition\Agent Services.) Consult your Microsoft documentation for information on installing a farm solution.

Note: You must enable SharePoint native auditing. The farm solution is not a replacement for native auditing, it is an enhancement.

This farm solution captures some events that are unavailable through native SharePoint auditing, specifically:

  • Adding a folder
  • Adding a library
  • Renaming a list or library
  • Creating a site

Map SharePoint events to Data Governance events

When you track resource activity using Data Governance Edition, the results appear in views, reports, and dashboards. To simplify things, SharePoint events are grouped for easier reporting. The following table outlines the events you see in your reports, and the corresponding SharePoint events.
