What is the job audit log?
The job audit log is a collection of records that preserve the job execution history and results.
The job audit log is useful for:
- troubleshooting jobs (e.g. we don't receive the notification emails, is the job executing at all?)
- content audits (e.g. we already have 123 expired pages in Confluence, is the trend increasing, stagnating or decreasing?)
- looking up past job executions (e.g. we received unexpected notification emails, who ran the job that sent those?)
View the job audit log
There are two scopes where you can see the job audit log:
- Site scope: Go to Confluence Settings (cog icon "⚙" in the top right) → Better Content Archiving → Job audit log. You can see every job execution here, including both site scope ones and space scope ones.
- Space scope: Go to the space → Space Settings → Integrations → Better Content Archiving → Job audit log. You can see the job executions that were executed only in this space (space scope).
The table displays the job executions, with the most recent one in the top:
