29.1 Managing Database Logs

You can determine the frequency with which database logs (audit trail entries and change log entries) are deleted from the Vibe system.

  1. Log in to the Vibe site as the Vibe administrator.

  2. Click your linked name in the upper right corner of the page, then click the Administration Console icon .

  3. Click Database Logs and File Archiving.

  4. In the Manage Database Logs section, the following options are available:

    Automatically Delete Audit Trail Entries Older Than xx Days: Enabled by default, this sets the maximum number of days that audit trail log entries are retained. The default is 0, meaning that entries are retained indefinitely.

    IMPORTANT:Vibe uses audit trail entries to build activity and login reports. Removing older entries limits the possible time span for these reports. (For more information about these reports, see Generating Reports.)

    Also, the Vibe desktop application relies on audit trail data when doing full synchronizations.

    Enable the Change Log: Enabled by default, this log tracks the edit history of folders, files, and entries, including the following actions:

    • Adding, modifying, deleting, and moving of entries, folders, and workspaces.

    • Changes to access control settings for entries, folders, and workspaces.

    • Changes to workflows, including starting, stopping, changing states, and timeouts.

    Automatically Delete Change Log Entries Older Than xx Days:

    CAUTION:Generally speaking, OpenText doesn’t recommend changing this setting because doing so causes entire Workflow histories to be removed.

    You can specify the maximum number of days to keep change log entries before they are deleted. The default is 0, meaning that entry retention is unlimited.

    Removing older log entries will limit how far back changes to an item can be traced.

  5. Click OK.
