On the QMC audit page, you can query for resources and users, and audit the security rules, load balancing rules, or license rules that have been defined in the Qlik Sense system.

Audit page with a query on Streams, with heading bar (A), audit bar (B), and action bar (C).

Example of audit page interface

Audit page heading bar options

  • Audit security rules drop-down list: Select the rules to audit: security rules, load balancing rules, or license rules.

  • Auto audit: When selected, all changes that are applied on the edit pages for resources, users, or rules will automatically refresh the audit table. Also, when editing, opening a security rule automatically generates a preview, if the resource type can be extracted.

  • Clear all filters: Clear resource selection and user search query. You have to click Audit to update the grid.

  • Privileges to audit: For security rules audits, you can select several different privileges to audit. What privileges that are available for a particular audit depends on the selected resource. Click Undo to reset to the default privileges.

Audit page Audit bar options

  • Audit: Click Audit when you have selected target resource, users, and environment.

  • Export: Export audit data for the selected user/resource matrix and environment to a CSV file. For more information, see Exporting audit query results.

  • Target resource: Select the resource to audit. Resources include the following:

    • Analytic connections
    • Apps
    • Content libraries
    • Data connections
    • App objects
    • Streams
    • Reload tasks
    • User synchronization tasks
    • Users
    • Security rules
    • Extensions
    • User directory connectors
    • Nodes
    • Login access (only for license rule audit)

    License rules audit is always on login access.

  • Users: Click Search and use search to reduce the set of users. Auditing a large number of users and resources requires a lot of server processing and may take some time.

    See Searching and filtering in the QMC for more information.

  • Environment: Select the context for the audit.

    Filter container: Simulate user environment.

    Simulate the user environment by setting the operating system, browser, and IP address. The available settings depend on the system setup and which browser headers that are available.
