The Audit Trail module is designed to give you full insight into significant actions taken on your site. The "Audit Contexts" is its main feature. With this feature, you can specify which types of actions on your site are logged.


The "Audit Contexts" feature is composed of the several parts (contexts).

What are the "Contexts"?

The Audit Trail monitors key activities on your site and records events as they happen. Contexts are created to group those activities.
