ScriptRunner audit log helps you to inspect the script configuration changes made by the users. The audit log service logs add, edit or delete operation for ScriptRunner scripts as part of application audit log. The service also logs execution of built-in scripts that could potentially change the system.

To avoid swamping the audit log, the service does not log activities where scripts read data from the system rather than changing the configurations.

View Audit Log

ScriptRunner audit logging is enabled by default since ScriptRunner v5.3.8 as part of Confluence audit log. You must be a Confluence administrator to view the Confluence audit log.

Navigate to General Configuration →Audit Log to view the audit log. The Change field appends with 'ScriptRunner' for the ScriptRunner audit log entry. The screenshot below is an example of how the ScriptRunner audit log entries looks like in Confluence audit log.


Disabling Audit Log

You won’t be able to inspect ScriptRunner script configuration changes if the audit logging is disabled. We highly discourage disabling ScriptRunner audit logging mechanism unless you have a strong reason.

To disable the audit logging follow following steps:

  • Login as an administrator and go to [BASE-URL]/admin/darkfeatures.action

  • In the Enable Dark Feature text field add scriptrunner.audit.log.disabled

The image below shows the dark feature page after adding the scriptrunner.audit.log.disabled key :


Enabling Audit Log

  • Login as an administrator and go to [BASE-URL]/admin/darkfeatures.action

  • Locate scriptrunner.audit.log.disabled key and select (remove) link on the right side of the key. This should remove the scriptrunner.audit.log.disabled key from the list.
