Journaling of deleted work logs and issues

Is it just me or does JIRA not journal these events? I don't see them in the history or activity stream. I'm an on-demand user. My leads would like to know when these things happen. I realize as a project admin, these events are allowed, but any record goes into the ether, it appears. Thx!

You are correct, it does not log them in any way.

Same for edits and deletes of comments - original text is gone forever (although you do get an email saying "was X, changed to Y" on comment edits)

If you weren't using OnDemand, I'd point at the auditor plugin which does log these events, alongside most of your administration actions. With OnDemand, your only real option is to remove permissions for users to do these things.

And also, to prevent the deletion of worklogs, protect them using permissions and allow may only project admins to delete/edit the worklogs.
