Audit SharePoint farm configuration changes

Configuration changes are always audited.

Audit SharePoint permissions and content changes

Select change types to be audited with Netwrix Auditor.

Netwrix Auditor allows auditing the entire SharePoint farm. Alternatively, you can limit the auditing scope to separate web applications and site collections. To do it, select Specific SharePoint objects and do one of the following:

  • Click Add, provide the URL to web application or site collection and select object type (Web application or Site collection).
  • Click Import, select object type (Web application or Site collection), encoding type, and browse for a file that contains a list of web applications and sites.

NOTE: Netwrix Auditor ignores changes to system data (e.g., hidden and system lists or items are not audited). Netwrix Auditor also ignores the content changes to sites and objects on the site collections located on Central Administration web application, but the security changes that occurred there are tracked and reported anyway.

Read Access

Audit SharePoint read access

Configure Netwrix Auditor to track read access to lists and list items within your SharePoint farm except for Central Administration web sites. Select Sites only if you want to enable read access auditing on SharePoint sites only. Enable Sites and subsites to track read access on each subsite. Then, do one of the following:

  • Click Add and provide URL to a SharePoint site.
  • Click Import, select encoding type, and browse for a file that contains a list of sites.

NOTE: Read access auditing significantly increases the number of events generated on your SharePoint and the amount of data written to the AuditArchive.
