The Audit Log is available only for Barracuda Email Security Service accounts. It is not available with Barracuda Cloud Protection Layer.


The Audit Log provides a record of all changes made to Barracuda Email Security Service by administrators, end users, and Barracuda Networks Support. This can help both the Administrator and Barracuda Networks Support to track down the reason for a particular behavior. For example, the Audit Log shows which user added a domain to an allow list.
