[Defender Pro] Audit log; WPMU i.o. Guest

After scrolling through the audit log in Defender I noticed that the guest has quite some activities. However it’s not a guest it’s WPMU. Either on sending a lockout mail or adding minified files from Hummingbird. Perhaps it’s possible to set a label for WPMU activity, Instead of “Guest added new [whatever]” it would be “WPMU added new [whatever]”. It’s not a critical request but just thought it would look better and also easier to look through audits.

Kind regards,

    Hi ROIverhogen

    I hope you’re well today!

    That’s a great catch, though it’s a bit more “twisted” than it seems :slight_smile: Quite a lot of these activities would actually be.. from “guest” in that sense that it’s a guest visit that triggers certain actions which then, indeed, would be performed by e.g. Hummingbird plugin. Still though, from “WP point of view” – it’s triggered by guest :slight_smile:

    But yes, I get the point and I think it might be worth to dig into and see how we could possibly differentiate such events from the “real” guest users actions. I’ll ask our Defender team to look into it, though could I ask you also if you could please share some more/more specific examples of such evens that you already identified as those that should be marked separately as e.g. WPMU DEV instead of guest?

    That would help a lot :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
    Adam

    Hi Adam Czajczyk ,

    Apologies for the late reply. I hope you’re doing great aswell.

    I’ll gladly share some of the events however I will leave out the URL for reasons.

    These are currently the only ones I have. I seperated them here in Hummingbird and Defender but when showing in log I think “WPMU” or “WPMU-DEV” would suffice.

    Interesting point is that I have 2 “Guest” added minify group and both have different IP’s

    Hello ROIverhogen ,

    Thank you for the additional information. We will pass this to the Defender team and they check it and discuss it further to see if they can make those changes.

    As Adam mentioned, those actions are triggered by actual guest on the site – so it’s possible that those were 2 different IPs.

    kind regards,
    Kasia
