The issue you are facing:

Hi, I set up audit.log but I can’t get messages in WebGui Settings>Logging, audit.log file is written correctly.

Can anyone help, please?

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):

*relevant parts ONLY, I tried with loglevel=1 too, same result

        "loglevel": 2,
        "logtimezone": "Europe\/Rome",
        "logdateformat": "d F, Y H:i:s",
        "log.condition": {
            "apps": [


        "admin_audit": {
            "enabled": "yes",
            "installed_version": "1.12.0",
            "logfile": "\/appl\/nextcloud\/data\/audit.log",
            "types": "logging"

The audit.log file is written in parallel to the “normal” nextcloud.log file. It cannot be shown using the web GUI yet, only the nextcloud.log file shown.

Thanks a lot for your answer!!!

How can I get logs for users’ activities?

If I use nextcloud.log only and I set log level to 1, can I get logs for users login, sharing, and downloads ?

thx. Mx.
