MindSphere Remote Services - Supervising the system

This section outlines how to supervise MRS with respect to relevant configuration or connectivity changes or concerning MRS-internal activities such as user interaction. Furthermore, it is possible to check billing-related information for services and resources.

Audit Log for configuration, access or connectivity changes

Network-to-network access requires trust and it is considered essential, to log related information such as which user was granted which access or which user accessed which Device in a Device Network during which time period. This is provided by Audit Log. When using it, you may adjust the width of the columns, and filtering for information is supported, too.

Note: there is no logging of activities, which a user performed inside a network-to-network connection, because MRS does not decode any such traffic.

The audit log is available in MRS V1 within the tile "System Status". It displays a list of events and their related information.

By selecting a column's head cell you may change sorting orders and even activate filters. Here we filter for events related to user europe. Column width maybe adjusted by selecting and shifting their separator lines.

System Log for key activities of the MRS app

When users work with MRS, they may trigger key activities such as email notifications or downloading of Service Endpoints or Device Endpoints. You will find such information in the system log, which is available in MRS V1 under the tile "System Status".

Billing information for subscribed MRS services and resources

If you are interested in billing-related information, then the Billing Reports will provide you with an overview on billing-related events. There are different Device-centric and User-centric views, which are available in MRS V1 under the tile. For selecting a report navigate your mouse to the respective row and select "Open" from the 3-layered menu icon to its right.
