Audit reports

Learn how to create authority, borrower, statistics, and stockitem audit reports in Amlib.

Audits and audit reports

The audit reports list stockitems/authorities/borrowers that have been deleted, inserted (added) or updated (modified/changed) within a specified time period.

In addition to the audits, there are a number of Statistics Reports Audits that look at Operator logons and alterations, as well as searches performed in each module.

Supervisor settings: Setting up audits

The Audit must be switched on first, before the data can be collected. To check this:

  1. Launch the Amlib client.
  2. Go to Main > Supervisor > Installation > Other tab.
  3. There are several types of audit:
    • Create an audit for Authorities (Y/N)
    • Create an audit for all Borrowers (Y/N)
    • Create an audit for all issues prompted with messages (Y/N)
    • Create an audit for all Stockitems (Y/N)
  4. If you would like to keep audit details, ensure that these are set to Y (particularly the last).
  5. Make sure you also check your settings by individual Location:
    1. Select Installation > Choose Location.
    2. Select location and click OK.
    3. Select the Other tab.

 Note: Any record(s) that were deleted, inserted, or updated prior to the audit being switched on will not be recorded.

Issues audit

Issues Audit records all messages that are displayed in issues. If you do not use this particular function, make sure the audit is switched off (see Supervisor Settings above):
