ApsaraDB for MongoDB:View audit logs

Last Updated:May 08, 2024

This topic describes how to view audit logs on ApsaraDB for MongoDB.


Before the official launch of the audit log feature, the free trial edition was activated for the instance.
Note Starting from January 6, 2022, the official edition of the audit log feature has been launched in all regions, and new applications for the free trial edition have ended. For more information, see [Notice] On official launch of the pay-as-you-go audit log feature and no more application for the free trial edition.

View audit logs

  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for MongoDB console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Replica Set Instances or Sharded Cluster Instances based on the instance type.

  3. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the resource group and region to which the instance belongs.

  4. Click the ID of an instance, or click More icon in the Actions column corresponding to the instance and select Manage.

  5. In the left-side navigation pane of the instance details page, choose Data Security > Audit Logs.

  6. On the Mongo audit log center page, query the details of audit logs. By default, the audit logs of 15 minutes (relative) are displayed.

    You can click Refresh in the upper-right corner of the Mongo audit log center page to set the refresh frequency of audit logs.

    • Once

      Specifies to immediately refresh audit logs.

    • Auto Refresh

      Specifies to refresh audit logs every 15 seconds, 60 seconds, 5 minutes, or 15 minutes.


      If you do not want to use the auto-refresh interval specified by this parameter, choose Refresh > Close to clear the current parameter setting, and then reset this parameter.


Why do I view only 2,000 audit log entries?

The Mongo audit log center page of the ApsaraDB for MongoDB console displays a maximum of 2,000 audit log entries. To view more audit log entries, log on to the Log Service console. For more information, see Query and analyze logs.
