Auditing of Nexus Repository Manager is done by enabling a capability called Audit as described in Accessing and Configuring Capabilities. For your convenience, this capability is created by default in Nexus Repository Manager installations but is disabled.

Once enabled, a left navigation item Audit will appear under the System submenu of the Administration section. Clicking on this item reveals a table of audit records that have occurred in your Nexus Repository Manager instance, like the example shown in Figure 6.20, “Example of Audit Table with Expanded Line Item”. This table data persists through server restart but can be manually cleared using the Clear button above the table results.

The table contains a record for every configuration change, as well as any asset or component additions and removals. Each row will give you some details about the event, including the type of event, when it happened and which user initiated the action. In addition to what is shown, each line item can be expanded to show more information by clicking the + sign at the beginning of the row. The content of the expanded information varies slightly by the Domain viewed. You can collapse the additional information by clicking the - sign at the beginning of the row. The table displays about 250 rows and if there are more than that you need to use pagination to see more entries.
