Log all actions inside Silva CMS in a file or SQL table

Project description


This extensions log in details user actions in Silva. To do so, you need to add a Silva Security Logging Service in ZMI, in a site (either your Silva Root or a local site).

You can configure the logging output. By default it will be logged in the Zope logs, but you can log to an SQL database as well.

In order to do this, you need to configure a SQL connection in Zope to your database, and in Silva Security Logging Service to select SQL logging, and your database identifier. The connected database should have a table called log created like this:

create table log (
    username varchar(255),
    action varchar(255),
    time datetime,
    content varchar(512),
    content_intid bigint,
    info varchar(255))


This table is not automatically created for you.


You can name your table differently, and configure the name on the service.

The log storage is extensible, you can provide your own storage.
