Where to find the audit event

Created

A “Created” event is added when a user creates a new repository object, such as a folder or model. Creating a new configuration, glossary, physical data model, semantic mapping or data mapping also causes a new version of the model to be created. Therefore a “Created” event is created for the new version as well. A “Created” event is also added when a new model version is imported. 

History tab of the newly created repository object, i.e. folder, model or version

Added child

An “Added child” event is added when a user creates a new repository object, such as folder or model.
