By default, the WordPress audit trail (where a record of all WordPress changes is kept) can be accessed only by users with an administrator role. In case of a WordPress multisite installation the site administrators have access to the audit trail of the website they administer and the super admins have access to the global WordPress audit trial.

Allow Non WordPress Administrators to View the Audit Trail

Use the option Can View Alerts in the plugin settings to allow a specific user, or users with a specific WordPress role to view the WordPress audit trail. In the example below we are allowing the WordPress users robin and ruby access to the WordPress audit trail.

Allow Users with a Specific Role to View the Audit Trail

You can also allow all the users with a specific WordPress role to access the WordPress audit trail and see all the recorded changes. In the example below we are allowing all the users with the Editor role to see all the WordPress security alerts in the audit trail.
