Hi,

Can anyone please let me know the difference between Audit Trail and Application Audit Logs? Is 'Application Audit Logs' specifically used for integration with SIEM applications? 

Thank you!

  1. Audit Trail:

    • An audit trail is a chronological record of events or actions within a system. It provides a detailed history of activities such as user logins, data access, modifications, and system events performed from UI.
    • Audit trails are typically used for tracking and monitoring user behavior, ensuring compliance with regulations, investigating security incidents, and maintaining accountability.
    • They are often internal to the application or system and are primarily used for internal auditing purposes.
    • This can be pushed to SIEM using analytics report
  2. Application Audit Logs:

    • Application audit logs refer to the specific logs generated by an application to record events, actions, and errors that occur within the application's environment.
    • These logs capture detailed information about user interactions, system activities, errors, warnings, and other relevant events.
    • Application audit logs can be used for various purposes, including troubleshooting, performance monitoring, compliance reporting, and security analysis
    • This can not be pushed to SIEM

@rushikeshvartak According to your reply, you have mentioned both Application audit logs cannot be pushed to SIEM and also in the last paragraph, you have mentioned it can be pushed. Can you please confirm once again?

Updated.
