6.0 Searching

Novell Identity Audit provides the ability to perform a search on events. The search includes all online data currently in the database, but internal events generated by the Identity Audit system are excluded unless the user selects Include System Events. By default, events are sorted based on the search engine’s relevancy algorithm.

Basic event information includes event name, source, time, severity, information about the initiator (represented by an arrow icon), and information about the target (represented by a bull’s-eye icon).
