  • Hi,

    Sorry for the delayed reply.

    The security log records each event as defined by the audit policies you set on each object.

    To view the security log: 

    1. Open Event Viewer.
    2. In the console tree, expand Windows Logs, and then click Security. The results pane lists individual security events.
    3. If you want to see more details about a specific event, in the results pane, click the event.

    More information about Security auditing, please refer to: 


    Best regards,
