Audit Trail, document each step

Audit Trail function: Document every step in the life of an Alarm

The Audit Trail feature in Compose IT’s Reports and Visualization is a critical component that enables users to track and document every important change in an alarm’s lifecycle. This feature is critical to creating transparency and traceability in the handling of alarms and events, especially in enterprise environments where accuracy and accountability are paramount.

Here are some key aspects of the Audit Trail feature

Tracking of an alarm’s history

Audit Trail saves every action performed on an alarm. That includes  the hijacking of the alert, any changes made, and when the alert is closed or archived. This creates a detailed timestamp history that allows users to see exactly how an alarm has evolved over time.

Identification of those responsible

Every action that affects an alarm is documented with information about who performed the action. This means that users can identify the specific individuals or systems that were responsible for a particular change. It is particularly valuable for distributing responsibility and creating transparency.

Tracking of Automations and Policies

Audit Trail goes one step further by registering which automations or policies have performed a certain change in the alarm’s lifecycle. This gives users a clear understanding of the underlying rules and systems that have affected the alarm. It can be very helpful for analyzing and optimizing automated processes.

Reporting and Analysis

The history collected in Audit Trail can be easily extracted and used for reporting and analysis. This can be particularly useful for evaluating performance, identifying patterns, and monitoring company compliance with regulations and standards.


In summary, the Audit Trail feature is an indispensable part of the Collection: Reports and Visualization module from Compose IT. It provides users with tools to increase transparency and traceability in the management of alarms and events, which is essential to ensure efficient and responsible IT operations in corporate environments. With this feature, companies can better manage and optimize their incident management and comply with compliance rules in a simple and efficient way.
