The Problem

Auditor for Confluence solves the problem of the lack of information about past actions performed by multiple Confluence administrators.

Today Confluence doesn't provide complete audit trail for administrative events. Some limited auditing is available, but it's far from perfect and is lacking in many areas. For most changes there is no easy way to find out which administrator made which change and when.

Someone reconfigured sidebar? The scheduled jobs were updated? Whitelist was changed? Somebody added external gadgets? An add-on was disabled? A PDF layout was modified for some reason? User's password was changed? Somebody changed something, and as a result things don't work as expected? - If any of this happens in Confluence today, you don't know who made the change, when they did it, and can't ask them why.

The Solution

Auditor for Confluence is an easily installable Confluence plug-in that resolves the problems described above. It tracks all events performed by administrators and stores information about them in the comprehensive audit log. Whenever something unexpected happens, you can search the log and see who and when made the change. Knowing that, you can discuss the issue with this person and find out whether the change was legitimate or done by mistake. This makes your work much easier and puts all your Confluence administration under control.
