On this tab, you can set general settings for the MyQ Log, and the Log notifier feature, which enables sending notifications about selected log events to the administrator and/or any number of MyQ users. The notifications can be sent via email or they can be sent to Windows Event Viewer.

Log and Audit settings tab

General – If you select the Log debug level messages option, the system will generate more information for troubleshooting. The information will be shown in the MyQ Log.

However, this feature will impact your system's performance. Therefore, we recommend you enable it only in case of a system malfunction or if it is requested by MyQ support.

History – Here you can set when the logs should be deleted (in days).

Log Notifier – The notifications and their destinations are both specified by log notifier rules. Here you can set the period after which the log is checked for new events in the Check new records in log every: ... seconds text box (300 by default).

Management of the Log Notifier Rules

To add a new rule, click +Add item at the upper-left corner of the Log Notifier rules widget. The properties panel of the new rule opens on the right side of the tab. On the tab, edit and save the rule.
