Activity logs

The Drupal Commerce Log module provides activity logs for Commerce entities. Administrative users can view these logs through the UI to help them manage these entities. Currently, the module only includes built-in support for logging activity related to Order entities. However, developers will find that the module can be easily extended to log activity for other entities.

For information on creating custom activity logs, see these documentation pages:

Order activity

When the Commerce Log module is installed, logs will be automatically generated for order activity. Those logs are displayed on an Order's View page, like this:

This example order has had 3 logs created. The first (bottom-most) entry was created when the customer added an item to his cart. Logs are also created when items are removed from a cart.

The next two logs were created when the order was placed. All of the default Order state transition events are logged: Placed, Validated, Fulfilled, and Canceled. For more information on state transition events, see the State machine documentation.

The "Order activity" listing is a Views block that can be modified through the Admin UI like any other View.
