Audit on Setting Permission to Create Forms for Groups

Each time an administrator mass updates the system and grants permission to groups of users, an audit trail is generated that Support can reference.

While it is not standard functionality to provide clients access to this report, and it is not something we can office as regular service and automate delivery to you for, should you have a 1 off situation where knowing who executed the job to change permissions, support will be able to provide basic details of the job and when it was run.

Please open a case with support. Please request we provide the information for:

Request Provisioning Audit Report from Quartz Job Monitor:

Type: Permission to create form

Instance: (client to provide)

Date:  (please provide a date as specific as possible. While we can provide you a list of jobs run in the past 90 days, we can only provide you more granular details for a specific log entry, so once you have identified the specific entry of interest, we will drill into that entry to manually grab audit details for that 1 job.)

Userid: If known, provide the userid of person suspected of creating job.


Support staff can retrieve this information from Provisioning > instance > Job Monitor > Select Job Type filter =     "Permission to create form" > enter a date range > run report.

From List of entires..


Support will copy and paste the detials into your case in the following format. (No other format options are available. No other information other than this is available in this report.)
