The audit log retains historical information about actions triggered within the Steadybit platform. For example, the audit logs help to answer questions such as:
- When was the experiment executed, by whom, and which hosts did it affect?
- When did we engage the experiment kill switch?
At the moment, only a handful of activities are logged for auditing purposes. In the future, this will be extended.
Audit logs are retained for up to 90 days for our SaaS platform. Customers leveraging an on-premise Steadybit platform installation can extend the retention through the
steadybit.auditlog.removeAfterconfiguration option. The configuration option accepts shorthands for time units, e.g.,
90dfor 90 days.
