Audit events dashboard

For Enterprise only: Monitor and analyze all activity in your organization, and identify potential security risks.

Updated over a week ago

For org admins on Coda’s Enterprise plan, the audit events dashboard is a powerful tool designed to help easily monitor and analyze all activity in your organization. This dashboard provides a centralized view of actions users have taken within Coda. Org admins can use this information to identify potential security risks, such as unexpected access attempts, and to help ensure compliance with your organization's policies.

ℹ️ The audit events dashboard is accessible only to org admins on Coda’s Enterprise plan.

Access the audit events dashboard

To view the audit events dashboard, follow these steps:

  1. In the lower left corner, select More options, then select Organization settings

  2. Navigate to the Audit log tab (towards the right side of your screen)

Dashboard overview

The dashboard contains key information to help you analyze your organization’s audit logs. Each line in the dashboard represents a unique event. For each event, you can see the following information:

  • Data & time: This column shows the local date and time the action occurred

  • User: This column shows the user email ID that performed or is associated with the action

  • Action: This column shows the action or event that occurred. Some actions have more metadata that can be viewed by hovering over the ℹ️ icon next to the action

  • Entity: This column provides key details on the entity (doc, folder, group, organization etc) associated with the action

  • Result: This column indicates whether the action was allowed or denied

  • IP address: This column provides the IP address associated with the user that performed the action. You can also see the browser user agent information by hovering over the IP address.

Filter audit events

You can analyze specific audit events by using the filters at the top of the dashboard. The following filters are available:

  • People: To filter the audit events performed by a specific user

  • Date: To filter the audit events on a specific date or within a date range

  • Action: To filter the audit events to a specific action that occurred

  • Search: You can also use the search bar to search for and filter audit events associated with specific entity IDs.

For example, if you want to see the audit trail for a specific doc, paste the docID in the the search bar and hit enter. You should now see all the events associated with that specific doc.

ℹ️ In addition to the audit events dashboard, you can also use Coda’s Admin API to programmatically query audit events, integrate with other tools and export relevant data. Learn more about the Admin API here.


Who has access to the audit events dashboard?

Only org admins on Coda’s Enterprise plan have access to the audit events dashboard.

When should I use the audit events dashboard vs. Coda Admin Pack vs. Admin API?

All of these should surface the same data so it depends what makes the most sense for your needs.

  • The audit log dashboard is likely easiest to use for quick and general-purpose inspection.

  • The Coda Admin Pack is likely best for performing exports or more structured bulk actions based on a set of events.

  • The Admin API offers the most flexibility in terms of integration and can be used to integrated with SIEM systems.

What events are or aren’t shown in the audit events dashboard?

All events documented via the audit events API should be accessible via the audit events dashboard. We expect this list to continue growing, and if there are additional events you would like to see here please let us know.
