Backend action logs serve as a powerful tool for debugging and rolling back specific changes manually rather than restoring a site based on a backup losing desired updates in the process.

The Admin Log extension also logs changes such as when an admin account updates a product or changes configurations. Using the extension you can discover what was changed.

Manage your admin users

Our extension provides a detailed admin log history and advanced setting to save or remove history logs.

Besides the general grid, the store manager can view detailed information for each admin action performed by the admin user.
