The Event Logs pane displays the following information:

  • Date/time the status was last updated for an event

  • Name of the device that is in the scope of an event

  • Object type (such as “macOS Configuration Profile”)

  • Object name associated with an event (such as the name of a configuration profile)

  • Action of the event (such as “Install”)

Event logs can be viewed for macOS configuration profiles and iOS configuration profiles.
