The feature described in this article is currently rolling out to some Jira Service Management Cloud customers. It may not yet be visible or available on your site.

Audit logs are a summary of all the activities associated with an integration that help team admins troubleshoot issues.

View the audit log

Things to do before you start:

To access and work with the audit logs for your team:

  1. In Jira Service Management, go to Settings > Products.

  2. Scroll to the Operations section and select Audit logs from the sidebar.

You’ll see a table of activities, organized by date and the time the activity happened. Expand a log entry to dig into the details. You can also copy the JSON version of the log for viewing. Some log entries may not include the details or the JSON content.

An audit log contains the following information:

  • IDs of and information about alerts, incidents, integrations

  • Time stamps, timezones

  • Details of action taken. For example, responder added, alert acknowledged, etc.

  • Integration properties

  • User profile information such as email, public name, full name, etc. as per the user’s profile visibility settings.

All the audit log information can be viewed by organization admins, Jira admins, and teams admins (as they have access to integrations' logs, including APIs and downloads).

Following is a detailed audit log entry in JSON format:
