Event Logs

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 date range, 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.

Note: If the Date & Time option returns more than 10,000 events, then a banner message displays recommending that you select a smaller date range. If you prefer a larger date range, then run an event report for each multiple child OG rather than a single event report on a single parent OG.

Console Events

Console events show MDM actions from the Workspace ONE UEM console that include the following examples: Login sessions, Failed login attempts, Admin actions, System settings changes, and User preferences.

This screenshot shows the Console Events page, which enables you to review the console event log.

  1. Navigate to Monitor > Reports and Analytics > Events > Console Events.
  2. Apply a filter (This blue icon is in the shape of a funnel.) to the list of console events. The behavior of this filter differs from other listing filters in Workspace ONE UEM. When you clear all filters from the Console Events listing, the listing displays only today’s console events.

    Choose from:

    • Date & Time (see Note above)
    • Severity
    • Category
    • Module
  3. View details of a specific console event by selecting the Event option.

Device Events

Device events are a listing of several different kinds of events logged by the system. It lists Mobile Device Management (MDM) commands to devices, device responses, and device user actions. You can filter the log by date range, the severity level, category, or module.

Severity levels for device events include the following descriptions.

  • Emergency – Indicates a catastrophic MDM failure requiring immediate attention.
  • Alert – Indicates a failure of a foundational MDM system requiring attention.
  • Critical – Indicates a failure in a primary MDM system.
  • Error – Indicates a failure in a non-primary MDM 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.
