Anonymize IP addressIn the context of the data stored in the event log: removes part of the IP address (for anonymization of the user) to comply with privacy regulations.
Delete data when uninstalling the pluginChecking this option will remove all WP Admin Audit-related data, including your event log, configuration settings, etc. upon uninstalling the plugin.
Logging levelThe logging level determines which kind of internal plugin events (e.g. an error while storing some data) should be written to WP Admin Audit’s log file.
Note this is independent of your site’s event log tracking your admin’s activities.
The purpose of the log file is that you can provide it to the WP Admin Audit tech support for review in case the plugin is not working as expected.
Log file warning size limit (MB)When the size of the log file (in megabytes) is exceeded a warning message is shown.
Force loggingDeactivates checks whether the log directory is existing and the log file is writable.
Use with caution! This can not work e.g. if your log path is configured wrong.
