Viewing Audit Event Message Content

Event logs contain valuable auditable information about the system's setup or stability.

The Audit Log page provides the ability to view system event messages. These messages may be confirmation that a process is running correctly, or an indicator that a process has encountered an error. Move the cursor over the Audit Log entries to highlight an audited event of interest.

  1. Click an Audit Log entry to access details about that particular entry.
    The Audit Event message dialog displays.
  2. View the Audit Event message dialog information about the selected event.
  3. Use the information provided in the following table to understand the details provided in an audit event's message.
    Message Element Description

    The system component that is the source of the Audit Log entry is displayed.

    Examples of what might be displayed in this field are Audit, System, StreamHandler, IncomingEmail, etc.

    Statement The complete statement that is being recorded in the Audit Log about a particular event is displayed. This statement will vary based on the type of event.
    Time The timestamp that corresponds to the Audit Log event is displayed.
    Event Code The corresponding event code for the Audit Log event that is being viewed is displayed.

    The priority level of the event is displayed. Three levels are provided by default:

    • Level 1 is Info
    • Level 2 is Warning
    • Level 3 is Error
    Node IP The Node IP is the IP address of the VM that is hosting the Vocera software.

    A Parameter is any information that is relevant to the event code, but is not included in the event code statement.

    The information that appears in the Parameters section can vary from each Audit Log event. Examples of what might be displayed in this field are the raw message of the event, any exceptions to the event code, and any parameters not included in the event code statement.


    An Alarm tells the system how to notify the user of a particular event. This functionality is the same as when configured in Notifications, but in a more streamlined fashion.

    There are three responses that the system can utilize: a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) alert, record it to the syslog, or send an email via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Select the checkbox for the appropriate alarm for this particular alarm.

    When searching events, all of the text on this screen is searched as well.

    To change the alarm type for future events, change the alarm setup in the Configuration section of Audit Log.

  4. Select Text View in the upper right corner to access a simple version of the details.
  5. When you have finished working with the audit event details, select Close in the upper right corner to return to the Audit Log list view.
