Audit Log

Overview

In the Thrio platform the audit log is used to search who accessed or modified the system.

An audit log is a security-relevant chronological record, set of records, and/or destination and source of records that provide documentary evidence of the sequence of activities that have affected at any time a specific operation, procedure, or event. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audit_trail.

In the Thrio Platform, the audit log is accessible through “Favorites”, i.e. Hamburger icon -> Audit Log.

Searching the audit log:

To search by a specific string, enter the information in the top search window and click Search.

Searches can be refined by the following criteria:

  • a user
  • an operation
  • an object type
  • an object identifier
  • a date range
  • expired data only

The following operations with their result are always logged:

  • Login, Logout
  • Creating a record
  • Updating a record
  • Deleting a record

By default, viewing a record is not logged. If a system administrator annotates a tenant’s schema type with a “retention” field, any attempt to VIEW a record of that type is logged. To define a retention period for a type, the following metadata must be added to the type:


"retention": {
"timeUnit": "SECONDS|MINUTES|HOURS|DAYS",
"minTTL": 60,
"maxTTL": 120
},

where:

  • timeUnit is either SECONDS or MINUTES or HOURS or DAYS
  • minTTL is the minimum amount of time to retain records of that type
  • maxTTL is the maximum amount of time to retain records of that type

The Thrio Platform doesn’t automatically delete “expired” records but they can be found by adjusting the filter to search for expired records. Only users with profiles containing the “searchExpired” authority have that option.

Database Schema

A database schema describes data formats, specifies the records that can enter the database. In other words, a schema is the structure of the database that defines the objects in the database. A database generally stores its schema in a data dictionary.

The Thrio Platform extends the native database schema with the “schematype” table that defines other tables with their fields, relationships, indexes, types, query fields, combinations of fields that constitute unique keys, and other elements. Schema types are predefined in the Thrio platform and can be overridden by tenant.

For example, the “user” type is described in the “user” schema type. When looking up a user in the client UI, you see fields like “First Name”, “Last Name”, etc. All those fields are defined in the “user” schema type.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
