Advanced Features → Working with Logs
Application Repository has a variety of logs to help you audit and troubleshoot deployments and promotions. The logs have some common features that are explained in the following topics.
Some views in Application Repository enable you to define a filter. A filter enables you to limit the results of a search. The filter incorporates search criteria such as strings or a calendar date. You can name the filter to make it easy to retrieve.
A filter is visible only to the user who defined it.
To create a filter:
In views that enable you to define a filter, you also can switch from one filter to another, or you can delete the filter permanently.
To delete a filter:
If a view in Application Repository enables you to define a filter, you can also perform a search using the filter rules without actually saving the rules as a filter.
To search a log:
The views in Application Repository that list events or activities have a Clear History or Purge History button. This enables you to delete some or all the events or activities from the log. Purging history from the Audit Log and Event Manager Log clears the messages from the log and also deletes the corresponding process app versions from the repository, reclaiming space.
The Clear History option on the Common Log tab includes options for clearing entries before a specific date, and scheduling clear history operations to recur on a regular basis.
