What log shows if a setting was changed in JIRA?

How can I read through the logs in JIRA to tell if an admin changed a permission setting?

None yet - Jira doesn't track most admin changes (you can plough through access logs in some cases, but they won't necessarily give you any details.)

There's a plugin which tracks admin changes, and I understand Atlassian are looking at some logging of admin changes too. But there's nothing in 6.1 or below natively.

Thanks... Guess I'll just have to start revoking permissions from these noobs :)

Yes, one very good piece of advice I learned many years ago - never have more than 10 Jira administrators (for a VERY large install) and make sure they all work together closely!
