Events are records of administrative and device actions that the Workspace ONE UEM console stores in logs. Export event logs as CSV files. You can also configure the Workspace ONE UEM console to send the event logs to your Security Information and Event Management tools or Business Intelligence systems.

The event logs show both device events and Workspace ONE UEM console events. Device events show the commands sent from the console to devices, device responses, and device user actions. Console events show actions taken from the Workspace ONE UEM console including login sessions, failed login attempts, admin actions, system settings changes, and user preferences.

You can filter the severity level, category, or module.

Severity levels include the following descriptions.

  • Critical – Indicates a failure in a primary Workspace ONE UEM console system.
  • Error – Indicates a failure in a non-primary Workspace ONE UEM console system.
  • Warning – Indicates an issue in the future if action is not taken.
  • Notice – Indicates unusual conditions.
  • Information – Indicates normal operational data.
  • Debug – Indicates useful information for troubleshooting.
