Log Retention

Last modified on November 29, 2022

This page provides information about our log retention policy. StrongDM stores logs (such as queries, replays, and so forth) for a period of 13 months. After 13 months, log entries of any kind are permanently deleted.

The Admin UI shows logs when you select StrongDM as the storage location, or when you choose to store logs with StrongDM and with your gateway servers locally or with third parties. Logs are visible in the Admin UI for a particular period of time depending on the type of record. For example, some logs may show 12 months of entries, while certain kinds of queries may show the last day or the last 100 queries.

You can use the CLI to download the logs, search for specific events beyond the time range shown in the Admin UI, and get other audit information.
