If your organization is using unlimited event logs, it is a good idea to archive M-Files event logs once or twice per year. For instance, all installations using M-Files Compliance Kit also use unlimited event logs.

You can export all the events currently recorded in the event log by completing the following steps:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files server.
  3. Expand Document Vaults.
  4. Expand a vault.
  5. Select Event Log.
  6. In the task area, click Export.
  7. Click Export All Events.
    Result:The Browse For Folder dialog is opened.
  8. Select the folder in which you want to export the events and click OK.
    Result:The Confirm Delete dialog is opened.
  9. Click Delete to delete the exported events from the event log.
Once you have completed these steps, the events from the M-Files event log should be archived in the location of your choice as an XML file.
