The Action Logs feature records (logs) every change made by an Admin user who works in your store. This allows you to track all the changes made to your store. Tracking these changes, along with setting Admin permissions for a user, can help to secure your store from unwanted changes.

For most Admin actions, the logged information includes the action, the name of the user, success or failure of the action, and the ID of the object affected by the action. The IP address and date are also logged.

By default, all admin actions are enabled and logged. To configure Admin actions Logging, review the options and select or clear the checkbox for each action type. Adobe Commerce logs only checked types.

View the Action Logs Report to review logged admin actions and details.
