CA Workload Automation DE (dSeries) Server creates the audit logs that contain every user-initiated server command. Users can create reports and extract information from these logs. The EXPORTAUDITLOG command creates the reports in CSV and HTML formats.

CA Workload automation DE (dSeries)

To create an audit report, login to the CA Workload Automation DE via Desktop Client.

Navigate to CLI perspective.

In the CLI commands field enter 'help EXPORTAUDITLOG'. This will provide usage summary on the command.

Note: The commands for CLI are not case-sensistive. The report is generated on the server and not on the local Windows host where the Desktop Client is running.

Here is an example to generate a report between two dates:

exportauditlog path("/tmp/audit") name("MY_AUDIT") startdate("20120510") enddate("20120530")

The above example will generate an audit report on the server in /tmp/audit directory. The report will have all the entries from 10th of May to 30th of May, 2012.

Make sure that the path specified exists on the server and the user that runs DE has permission to write to that directory or folder.
