# Audit log streaming

The Workato platform automatically stores all Activity audit logs for a period of one year from the date of each event. This ensures you have ample time to review and analyze your activity logs for security and operational insights.

In addition to retaining audit logs in the Workato platform itself, you can also choose to stream these logs to a specified destination.

When you enable audit log streaming, Workato stores the job history of all your recipes, as well as login and user activity, in an Amazon S3 bucket or any REST endpoint. You can use any log service provider (such as Sumo Logic (opens new window), Datadog (opens new window), or Splunk (opens new window)).

Workato creates a JSON file for each event. The file size varies from 1 kB to 1 MB based on the details that are present in the logs.

Note that the Workato platform retains audit logs for the designated retention period whether audit log streaming is enabled or not.

Workato retains your audit for the designated retention period even if audit log streaming is not enabled. This retention is part of our commitment to data security and operational transparency.


Audit log streaming is an add-on feature. Contact your Customer Success representative to enable this feature in your account.
