We built Yurbi from the ground up as an integrated, seamless business intelligence (BI) platform. Thanks to Yurbi’s smooth design and functionality, Yurbi has robust auditing capabilities that allow Yurbi admins to track all of the user activity within Yurbi. In this definitive guide, we’ll highlight the benefits of Yurbi’s auditing capabilities and how to most effectively use this feature.
Yurbi admins can access audit features in two ways: Audit Options and the Yurbi v10 App. Yurbi Audit Options can be accessed via the admin dashboard. Within Audit Options, Yurbi isn’t just conducting security monitoring but extends its auditing capabilities for complete data governance. Data governance looks at both the security of the system and what users are doing inside the system.
Audit Options provides an easy way for Yurbi admins to audit security, reporting, user management, group management, and general items. Admins can select or deselect the specific components within each category on which to run audits, in addition to how long to retain the data (e.g. 30 days or 210 days). Retention periods are often decided based upon your compliance standards.
It’s important to note that Yurbi stores audit data by adding it to the installation database of Yurbi, therefore in order to run audits there must be enough space within your database to do so. This is why we automatically deselect the “Report Execution SQL” under the reporting category because this option runs reports on every SQL query run within Yurbi, which could fill up a database very quickly.
The second way Yurbi admins can audit user activity is via the Yurbi v10 App, which is found under the Builder tab. This App allows users to tap into all of the reporting capabilities within Yurbi that include the Audit Options categories and the v10 App also allows admins to audit other areas of Yurbi such as dashboards and contacts.
Yurbi’s audit feature has many benefits that not only enhance security, but also ensure that companies are using Yurbi to its fullest potential. Yurbi’s auditing feature benefits specifically add value to:
Through Yurbi’s audit options, we have provided users with the ability to monitor both the security and internal adoption success of Yurbi. Audit options also enable users to carry out administrative duties more easily. Ultimately, all of the benefits above contribute to the ability to measure the ROI of Yurbi within an organization because Yurbi admins can see whether users are truly logging in and running reports, or if they need additional training and guidance.
