At WP Engine we understand the importance of being able to monitor the activity on your account. That is why we offer a way to monitor activity across all of your installs! Using the new Activity Log in your User Portal, users are able to see who made changes and when those changes were made. To access the Activity Log, simply navigate to the user’s admin page (located in the the top nav of your User Portal) and click on the Activity Log in the sidebar.
Who can see this data?
As an account owner, you will have full access to view all activity across all of your users. Users with “full” permissions will be able to see the majority of global actions with the exception of a few (see below). Users with “partial” permissions will only be able to see activity related to the installs they have access to. Additionally, you will also be able to see actions committed by WP Engine. These actions will be logged as a user named ‘WP Engine’.

Need to filter certain users? No problem! We have a granular way to filter through changes. On the Activity Log page, you will notice there are headers to each section of the table that allow you to filter based on specific criteria. You can use these filters to search by user, install, domain name, defined actions, time, or any combination of the four!
