For information like JVM parameter number of spaces, OS information and the database would be inside the log. However if you would like to see any modification on the file, you could get it from System Information when you start up Confluence.
Nice question! There's a page in the Confluence administration UI that shows the configuration changes made since Confluence was installed. Here's the documentation:https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Tracking+Customisations+Made+to+your+Confluence+Installation
I hope this helps.
Thanks for the link, Sarah!
That's not quite the information I was looking for, though. I'm clearly not using the right terminology in my search, or in my question. :-(
What I'm looking for specifically is a log of changes to the Confluence configuration --- that is to say, configuration settings, not modifications such as adding a new user macro or some custom Java or Velocity code --- primarily at the system level. Specifically, I'd like to be able to track when and by whom: plug-ins were installed/enabled/disabled; the security configuration was changed; someone tweaked the overall search configuration, etc.
It would be nice if I could track when and by whom: someone added a new user group or a new user, or revises permissions for either; someone applied a different theme to a space; etc. These things are considerably less important, though.
Wikis are so great at tracking page histories, I just expected for system changes to be tracked at the same level of detail. If they are, I certainly haven't been able to find out where ....
Thanks for your help!
Hallo again Sami
Ah, I see. A partial answer is that you can track what's happened to plugins, via the Universal Plugin Manager's audit log:
For things like adding user groups, etc, I guess you'd need to do a database query.
That's as much as I know. :)
