Create a log

You can create a log that can be used by a logging rule to write entries into its log files.

When you create a log, you do not create it separately, but as a part of creating new settings for the File System Settings module.

Task

  1. Select PolicySettings.
  2. Expand File System Logging and select one of the existing settings, for example, Access Log Configuration.
    This will serve as a starting point for creating new settings, including the creation of a new log.
  3. Click Add above the settings tree.
    The Add Settings window opens.
  4. In the Name field, type a name for the settings.
  5. [Optional] In the Comment field, type a plain-text comment on the settings.
  6. [Optional] Select the Permission tab and configure who is allowed to access the settings.
  7. Under Name of the log, type the name of the new log.
  8. Configure other settings items, such as rotation or deletion, as needed.
  9. Click OK.
    The Add Settings window closes and the new settings appear under File System Logging on the settings tree.
  10. Click Save Changes.
