You set Configuration Logging preferences, display configuration logs, and generate HTML and CSV reports from Citrix Studio. You can filter configuration log displays by date ranges and by full text search results. Mandatory logging, when enabled, prevents configuration changes from being made unless they can be logged. With appropriate permission, you can delete entries from the configuration log. You cannot use the Configuration Logging feature to edit log content.
Configuration Logging uses a PowerShell 2.0 SDK and the Configuration Logging Service. The Configuration Logging Service runs on every Controller in the Site; if one Controller fails, the service on another Controller automatically handles logging requests.
By default, the Configuration Logging feature is enabled, and uses the Database that is created when you create the Site (the Site Configuration Database). Citrix strongly recommends that you you change the location of the database used for Configuration Logging as soon as possible after creating a Site. The Configuration Logging Database supports the same high availability features as the Site Configuration Database.
Access to Configuration Logging is controlled through Delegated Administration, with the Edit Logging Preferences and View Configuration Logs permissions.
Configuration logs are localized when they are created. For example, a log created in English will be read in English, regardless of the locale of the reader.
