Viewing User Activity

Viewing User Activity

Use the Logs tab of the Administrator tool to view user activity logs. View user activity logs to review login attempts from Informatica client applications. You can also view the logs to determine when a user created, updated, or removed services, nodes, users, groups, or roles.
See the Informatica Administrator Guide for more information about user activity logs and the Logs tab of the Administrator tool.
You can also use the infacmd isp getUserActivityLog command to view user activity log data. The infacmd isp getUserActivityLog command uses the following syntax:
infacmd isp getUserActivityLog -dn domain_name -un user_name -pd password
The infacmd isp getUserActivityLog command requires the Administrator role or membership in the Administrator group. For more information about the isp getUserActivityLog command, see the Informatica Command Reference.
The user activity log data includes successful and unsuccessful user login attempts from Informatica clients. If the client sets custom properties on login requests, the log data includes the custom properties.
The user activity logs do not include user login attempts in a domain configured to use Kerberos authentication.
The user activity data includes the following properties for each login attempt from an Informatica client:
  • Application name
  • Application version
  • Host name or IP address of the application host
You can view log events based on the following optional filters:
  • User name
  • Security domain
  • Date and time
  • Chronological order
  • Activity code
  • Activity text
You can display the log events at the command prompt or write the events to a file in one the following formats:
  • Binary
  • Text
  • XML
If you print a log in binary format, you can use the infacmd isp convertUserActivityLog command to convert it to text or XML format. See the Informatica Command Reference for more information on using the infacmd isp convertUserActivityLog command.
