How to use "Audit Trail"?

on 3/11/13, 7:29 AM 5,099 views

On OpenERP v6 I was using audit module for control all user activities. How to configure this module in v7?

Should I config each model to audit?

For example I want to see users login activities.

Hello Anton,

As I had to install this module, I have just discovered your question.

You have to install "Audit Trail" module; then you get 2 menus under reporting : * Audit Rules : where you define your rules (on read, write, delete, create, action or workflow events) => yes you have to define each model you want to audit. * Audit Log : where all the audited events are written.

Note 1 : you have to subscribe (validate) to your rules to make them active

If you want to audit users login activities, you just need to add a rules on res_users and log the write access.

FYI : I opened a bug since I am unable to log my users login, I got an error : https://bugs.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/+bug/1214149

PS: vote if you find this answer useful.

I need this for a customer who has an OpenERP Enterprise contract. I'm going to report it to the Enterprise team. Thank you for the report, Marc.

Hello Anton,

For understanding the "Audit Trail" process. You can see this link


Hope this helps you more :)


Thanks for good example. But, I can't find solution for this question: 'How to see all login/logout activities and how to audit ALL activities?'

I confirm the default config of audit trail in 6.1 was more efficient.

Hi Mayur, have you implemented "Audit Trail" module for Odoo 8.0?
