Monitoring and Auditing
SAP Analytics Cloud logs all activities that users perform on business objects, for example, making changes to a model.
The contents of an audit log tell you who did what and when, allowing tracking of user activity. This audit log does not replace the trace feature, which can log system errors.
In addition, SAP Analytics Cloud can log failed attempts to create, delete, and change objects in the following situations:
Disallowed or invalid change
Viewing activity log data
Watch this video to learn how to view the audited activities in the SAP Analytics Cloud.
The data changes feature for a model can optionally track the planning process down to the values changed. Unlike the audit log, this must be specifically requested, because it involves more storage.
You can use the monitoring reports and data available to monitor the real-time statistics and usage of the system.
Let’s use the SAP Analytics Cloud Content Usage story to monitor performance.
The SAP Analytics Cloud Content Usage story can be activated from Content Network → Sample.
The story contains four tabs:
- Story Information
- Model Information
- User Information
- Session Information
To monitor system performance, go to the Navigation Bar and choose to System → Monitor.
In the cloud, SAP does the real administration in this area, but usage information is always available to be reviewed by administrators on your tenant.
To help control costs, you can review usage information from the System Usage by Storage area.
