Yellowfin has a complete audit facility for tracking which users are accessing data from your data sources. Each time a report is run, a unique instance of that report definition and timestamp is saved.

As an administrator you will be able to run reports against the Yellowfin database to determine your usage statistics and track access to specific data sources and views.

Should we maintain unique user logins?

For security and audit purposes, it is vital that each user be given unique access logons to the system. If users use shared accounts, your ability as an administrator to manage security and audit reporting use will be compromised.

What data is stored in the report audit?

Each time a report is run a record is created that stores the details of that report.

Which user accessed the report

Report ID

Unique instance of a report definition

SQL Statement*
