System Tasks, System Logs and Service Status- Audit

You can view System Tasks and System Logs from the Audit menu. It allows you to track the actions performed in Avanan and helps with auditing purposes.

It also provides a Service Status page that shows the system's health, reported issues related to your Avanan portal, and their status.

System Tasks

Avanan Portal performs operations that can take a few minutes or even longer periods. To prevent the users from waiting until the operation is complete, Avanan Portal includes a System Tasks screen that shows these long tasks' status.

System Tasks are located under the Audit menu (Audit > System Tasks). You can see all the tasks that were executed with their status.


Clicking on one of the tasks shows a dialog that presents the current task status, with all the steps executed. If the task has failed, it shows the error reason.


To retry a failed task, click Retry.

System Logs

All actions are reported to the System Logs. To see the logs, go to Audit > System Logs.

To see the required logs, use Filters.

To export logs to an excel file, click Export to CSV.

Note - The System Logs are retained only for 12 months.


Service Status

Avanan notifies the administrators on system health status and maintenance activities relevant only to your tenant in the Avanan Portal.

The Service Status page allows you to:

  • View the current health of the system and see if there are any ongoing issues.
  • Browse through the history of the issues relevant to your tenant.
  • Subscribe to email and/or SMS updates on any issue related to your tenant.

You will see a warning icon in the Audit menu when there is any ongoing issue. The icon disappears after the issue is resolved.

To view the Service Status page, go to Audit > Service Status.

Under Service Status, you can view the current health of the system.

  • If there are no issues, it shows Operational.
  • If there are any ongoing issues, you can view the status, and the configured administrators will receive the status updates.
    After the issue is resolved, you can click on the Root Cause Analysis link to view the RCA document.

Under Issues history, using the drop-down, you can choose to view the issues reported in the Past week or All issues.
