View asset operation logs in activity stream activity-stream-in-timeline

This feature displays activity logs for assets on the timeline. If you perform any of the following asset-related operations in Experience Manager Assets, the Activity stream feature updates the timeline to reflect the activity.

The following operations are logged in the activity stream:

  • Create
  • Delete
  • Download (including renditions)
  • Publish
  • Unpublish
  • Approve
  • Reject
  • Move

The activity logs to be displayed in the timeline are fetched from the location /var/audit/ in CRX, where log files are stored. In addition, timeline activity is logged when new assets are uploaded or existing asses are modified and checked into Experience Manager via Adobe Asset Link or Experience Manager desktop app.

Transient workflows are not displayed in the timeline, because no history information is saved for these workflows.

To view the activity stream, perform one or more of the operations on the asset, select the asset, and then choose Timeline from the GlobalNav list.

The timeline displays the activity stream for the operations you perform on the assets.

The default log storage location for Publish and Unpublish tasks is /var/audit/ For Move tasks, the default location is /var/audit/
