Audit Trail

A log that records all events that occurred with respect to a particular App or App Component.

Implementing Audit Trails for Cloud Components is a best practice for software development and operations. Such Audit Trails are typically only accessible to the App Operator.

Some Apps also implement Audit Trails for Smartphone Components in order to enable the App User to gain confidence that their App behaves exactly as they are expecting it to.
