Audit log messages

This article lists the messages that appear in the domain audit log and the library audit log.

– For now, this article lists only administration scope messages.
– You may find deprecated messages in old audit logs, which aren't included in this list.
– A given action usually generates several messages. For example, creating a library generates LIBRARY_CREATED, but also CLASS_CREATED, VIEW_CREATED, LIBRARY_UPDATED, and so on. 

Administration scope
