“Welcome to Netwrix Auditor” tile

This tile provides a checklist you can use to get started collecting and viewing data about your IT ecosystem.

  • The first link prompts you to create a monitoring plan for at least one data source (such as Active Directory, Exchange Online or network devices). For detailed instructions on how to create a monitoring plan, refer to Monitoring Plans. Wait until the initial data collection completes.

  • Clicking the second link opens a dashboard that lists all the monitoring plans you’ve created, along with the status and last activity time for each. Review this list and address any errors or warnings, as explained in See Monitoring Overview for more information.

When you have completed these three steps, you can close this tile by clicking the "Close" link at the bottom. The checklist will be replaced by statistics across your audited systems. See Customize Home screen for more information.
