You can import log or audit trail files exported from the SiPass or SIPORT subsystem into Security Manager.

Make sure to not import audit trail files while a Sync Agent is connected.

For SiPass, the log files up to 10 MB are supported.

For SIPORT, the log files up to 30 MB are supported.

  • For SiPass, log files are available in either XLSX or XLS format.
  • For SiPass, the log file provides at least the following information: Date Occurred, Time Occurred, Location, Message, Card Number. Keep in mind the capitalization of the column name in the table's header (row 1). Also, make sure that the first column of the log file is empty.
  • For SIPORT, the log files are available in HTML or HTM format.
  • For SIPORT, the alarm log files need to contain the following information: Datum/Uhrzeit (tt.MM.jjjj HH:mm:ss) (Date/Time (dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm:ss)), Datenpunktname (Gerätename) (Data Point Name (device name)), Alarmtext (Ereignistyp) (Alarm Message (event type)). Keep in mind that the Datenpunktname (Data Point Name) and Alarmtext (Alarm Message) columns cannot be empty. Additionally, a specific order of the columns is required to be followed. For example, the Datum/Uhrzeit (Date/Time) attribute is expected to appear in the first column, the Datenpunktname (Data Point Name) attribute in the fourth column, and the Alarmtext (Alarm Message) attribute in the fifth column.
  • For SIPORT, the access log files need to contain the following information: Datum/Uhrzeit (tt.MM.jjjj HH:mm:ss) (Date/Time (dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm:ss)), Ort (Gerätename) (Location (device name)), Ausweisnummer (Card ID). Keep in mind that the Ort (Location) and Ausweisnummer (Card ID) columns cannot be empty. Additionally, a specific order of the columns is required to be followed. For example, the Datum/Uhrzeit (Date/Time) attribute is expected to appear in the first column, the Ort (Location) attribute in the third column, and the Ausweisnummer (Card ID) attribute in the sixth column.
