Audit logs

Available on: Paid plans

The audit log is the report of all the activities done in your ToolJet account. It will capture and display events automatically by recording who performed an activity, what when, and where the activity was performed, along with other information such as IP address.

Audit logs

Date Range

Retrieve the log of events that occurred within the specified date and time range using the range picker. By default, the system loads 24-hour logs for the initial view. The maximum duration that can be specified for the "from" and "to" dates is 30 days.


Pagination at the bottom allows navigation through the pages, with each page displaying a maximum of 7 logs.

Understanding Log Information

Audit logs
action_typeThis indicates the type of action that was logged in the event. Refer to this for more information on actions.
created_atShows the date and time when the event was logged.
idEach logged event is assigned a unique event ID.
ip_addressDisplays the IP address from which the event was logged.
metadataThe metadata includes two sub-properties: tooljet_version and user_agent. tooljet_version shows the version of ToolJet used for the event, while user_agent contains information about the device and browser used.
organization_idEvery organization in ToolJet has a unique ID associated with it, which is recorded when an event occurs.
resource_idDifferent resources have their respective IDs associated with them. These IDs are assigned when the resources are created.
resource_nameShows the name of the resources that were involved in the logged event. For example, if an app was created or deleted, it will display the name of that app.
resource_typeIndicates the type of the resources involved in the logged event.
user_idEach user account in ToolJet has a unique ID associated with it, which is recorded when an event occurs.

Log file

The file will contain all the data from audit logs. The log file can be created by specifying the path in the environment variables. The log file is rotated on a daily basis and is updated dynamically every time a new audit log is generated.

Learn more about setting up the log file generation here.

Log Rotation

The log file is configured to rotate on a daily basis. This means that a new log file will be created every day, ensuring efficient management and organization of audit data.

Log File Path

The path for the log file is defined using the LOG_FILE_PATH variable in the environment. It's important to understand that this path is relative to the home directory of the machine. For instance, if LOG_FILE_PATH is set to hsbc/dashboard/log, the resulting log file path will be structured as follows:


Here, {process_id} is a placeholder for the unique process identifier, and {date} represents the current date. This structured path ensures that audit logs are organized by both process and date, facilitating easy traceability and analysis.

LOG_FILE_PATHthe path where the log file will be created ( eg: tooljet/log/tooljet-audit.log)
