    Features

    Config

    • Config in config/middleware.js we have to set:
     'audit-log': {
          enabled: true,
          exclude: []
          map: [
            {
              pluginName: 'content-manager',
              serviceName: 'contentmanager',
              decorate: boolean,
              
              Class: ExampleClass,
              fetchSingle: 'methodName',
            },
          ]
        },

    where:

    • enabled - to enable that middleware and plugin

    • map - contain configs which endpoint should handle by audit-log middleware

      • pluginName - plugin name which have log for this endpoint to it from strapi object, and first part url to requests
      • serviceName - service which on have business logic for this plugin
      • decorate - boolean which told audit log which path should be use to handle changes events or service decorate if we set it to true we should return from service new entity to compare to old one handled and cached by audit log, otherwise we should provide Class property where we can handle events from our service example for navigation
      • fetchSingle - method to fetch a single entity to compare snapshot for REST API, audit log will paste entityId as parameter
      • Class - a class which one handle audit-log logic, should extend Base class from this plugin this class have to implement method run which one will be call after finish other middlewares, this method have signature:
         abstract async run(method: string, ctx: KoaContext, config: ServiceConfig): Promise<void>;
      

      and in this method we should call save from Base class to save data in a database:

          await this.save(
            cleaningData.delete.id,
            AvailableAction.DELETE,
            ctx.params.model,
            diffs,
          );
      

      we can set couple types actions:

          export enum AvailableAction {
            CREATE = 'CREATE',
            UPDATE = 'UPDATE',
            DELETE = 'DELETE',
            // for batch actions
            UPDATE_REMOVE = 'UPDATE_REMOVE',
            UPDATE_CREATE = 'UPDATE_CREATE',
            CREATE_UPDATE = 'CREATE_UPDATE',
            CREATE_REMOVE = 'CREATE_REMOVE',
            REMOVE_UPDATE = 'REMOVE_UPDATE',
            REMOVE_CREATE = 'REMOVE_CREATE',
            CREATE_UPDATE_REMOVE = 'CREATE_UPDATE_REMOVE',
            CREATE_REMOVE_UPDATE = 'CREATE_REMOVE_UPDATE',
            UPDATE_CREATE_REMOVE = 'UPDATE_CREATE_REMOVE',
            UPDATE_REMOVE_CREATE = 'UPDATE_REMOVE_CREATE',
            REMOVE_UPDATE_CREATE = 'REMOVE_UPDATE_CREATE',
            REMOVE_CREATE_UPDATE = 'REMOVE_CREATE_UPDATE',
          }
      • fetchSingle - method name from service which one we can use to fetch full entity to get, we need this to create snapshots
      • decorate - flag for audit log how we collect data, with this flag audit log will decorate our service and save results from service methods in entities to compare changes
    • It will create a collection audit_log in a database where we can find information about the changes out model in the database, by default, we support the content-manager plugin.

    • We can fetch information about available versions some entity via endpoint:

    /audit-log?model={ourModelName}&id={entityId}
    

    Example response:

    REQUEST: GET http://HOST/audit-log?model=example&id=1
    RESPONSE:
    {
        "results": [
            {
                "id": 13,
                "originId": "1",
                "modelName": "example",
                "action": "UPDATE",
                "timestamp": "2020-11-09T09:31:42.105Z"
            },
            {
                "id": 14,
                "originId": "1",
                "modelName": "example",
                "action": "UPDATE",
                "timestamp": "2020-11-09T09:31:52.497Z"
            },
            {
                "id": 15,
                "originId": "1",
                "modelName": "example",
                "action": "UPDATE",
                "timestamp": "2020-11-09T09:47:19.830Z"
            }
        ]
    }
    • To fetch some history version we can use endpoint:
    /audit-log/{originId}/snapshots?model={modelName}&version={versionId}
    

    Example response:

    REQUEST: GET http://HOST/audit-log/13/snapshots?model=example&id=1
    RESPONSE:
    {
        "entity": {
            "id": 1,
            "name": "Example Data",
            "visible": true,
            "created_by": null,
        }
    }

    Under entity we can find our historic version.
