Audit Trail

ID: audit-trail

audit trail audit trail plugin

This plugin keeps a log of who performed particular Jenkins operations, such as configuring jobs.

This plugin adds an Audit Trail section in the main Jenkins configuration page. On this page, you can configure log destination and settings (eg file size and number of rotating log files), and a URI pattern for requests to be logged. The default options select most actions with significant effect such as creating/configuring/deleting jobs and views or delete/save-forever/start a build. The log is written to disk as configured and recent entries can also be viewed in the Manage / System Log section.

Also see the JobConfigHistory Plugin for recording actual changes made to job configurations.


File logger

Output audit logs in rolling files.


The file logger relies on java.util.logging.FileHandler and can use patterns to describe the log file location as documented here (%h, %g…​).

A separator can be set for the file logger in case further parsing of the file is done. Default separator is a space.

Syslog logger

Send audit logs to a Syslog server.



Console logger

Output audit logs in stdout or stderr. Primarily intended for debugging purpose.


Elastic Search logger

Send audit logs to an Elastic Search server
