Accessing SM20 logs of a different system


This document contains the procedure that needs to be followed to view the audit logs through SM20 in case you have changed the system name for some maintenance/upgrade activities and this system will be a temporary one and will be retired as soon as the tasks are finished. For example for a SPS implementation you we have renamed the SANDBOX ADX to ADT and we need to review the ADT logs from ADX.


  • Copy the  .AUD file (Through OS level) from temp system to the system through which the SM20 logs to be viewed. I also recommend to copy in a different folder and avoid copying in to existing audit for not to overwrite the existing audit files.
  • Run transaction code SE38/SA38/SE80/SE90 or any other report execution t-codes
  • Use the report RSAU_SELECT_EVENTS
  • Provide the inputs as shown below (Please consider name of the audit file, date & time will change based requirement)

      We want to take this exported log's to our SIEM product but in .AUD file all logs comes with one line. Is there a configuration to divide this logs into different columns like below.
