View Network search activity
The Search Audit History page displays all searches that occurred against Network data, ordered by the most recent. The history includes search queries, related objects, fields, and filters, and result counts. Search sources include calls from the Network UI, web applications using the Network search widget, and the Network UI.
Administrators can access the Search Audit History page by clicking Logs > Search Audit History.
By default, up to 50 entries for the past day display.
Each search event includes the following information, which administrators can use during debugging to reconstruct user searches:
- Timestamp - the date stamp for the search event.
- Network User Name - the Network user that initiated the search. For sales reps searching in Veeva CRM, this is the name of the Network integration user that connects to Veeva CRM.
- Search User Name - the end user that initiated the search. For Network UI or API searches, this is the Network user name. For Veeva CRM searches, this is the field rep who initiated the search.
- Status - the resulting status of the search request.
- Found - the total result count for the search.
- Returned - the count of results returned on the page. This count is constrained by the number of results allowed by the pagination setting.
