User Access Log in SAS VA

Hi All,

 

I would like to know where can I find the log that contains the info if a user access the SAS VA? 

 

I need to extract info or data like --> username, access sign in datetime, access sign out sign out datetime, application used in VA(designer, data builder).

 

I already accessed the /home/sassrv/sas/sasconfig/Lev1/Web/Logs/SASServer1_1 but couldn't find the info above that I needed.

 

Thank you!

Re: User Access Log in SAS VA

Hi @Albert0,

 

the information you require is generally distributed along different log files, on each SAS VA application (behind the scenes, VA is not a single application, but several). In the case you have SAS VA, you might have a single SASServer1_1 or SASServer1_1,SASServer2_1 and SASServer12_1.

 

If your case is the first, you have what you need. If it is the second case, you will find the logs in SASServer12_1.

 

Eventually, you might even require to extend the information level of the logs, to get what you need. And careful, that might decrease the performance of SAS VA.

 

I would strongly recommend you to enable the Administration reports to get Audit data on the VA application.

@Albert0,

 

I just want to warn you that audit data can consume significant amounts of disk space and processing capacity.

Are the logs inside these paths contains what are the user folder they are accessing in SAS VA? Like for example, user1 has access /Shared Data/User1 Folder?

 

Thank you for the reply.

Hi Guys,

 

Thank you for your response. I just read some of your reply and I just want to clear that my objective is to create a table that contains the following column

 

User    Datetime   Activity(Log In/Log Out)     SASVA Folder Accessed

 

I need to find the log file that contains this information on SAS VA.

 

Your response is much appreciated.
