Custom Event Search

Commander has the ability to create a full audit trail for all change and configuration management tracking. All changes to the underlying public and private cloud resources under management are stored, including the type of change, the date/time, and the user who initiated the change. You can use the complete filter set to search for events related to change and configuration management. For more information, see Advanced Searches. These searches can be saved and scheduled. For more information, see Run and Schedule Saved Searches.

Here’s an example of a search for all instance type modifications done for the last 30 days:
