Auditing Log Query
KubeSphere supports the query of auditing logs among isolated tenants. This tutorial demonstrates how to use the query function, including the interface, search parameters and detail pages.

Enter the Query Interface
The query function is available for all users. Log in to the console with any user, hover over the in the lower-right corner and select Audit Log Search.
Any user has the permission to query auditing logs, while the logs that each user is able to see are different.
- If a user has the permission to view resources in a project, it can see the auditing log that happens in this project, such as workload creation in the project.
- If a user has the permission to list projects in a workspace, it can see the auditing log that happens in this workspace but not in projects, such as project creation in the workspace.
- If a user has the permission to list projects in a cluster, it can see the auditing log that happens in this cluster but not in workspaces and projects, such as workspace creation in the cluster.
In the pop-up window, you can view log trends in the last 12 hours.
