Is there anyway to capture who has accessed Salesforce records? Does Event Monitoring capture this event?


The URI_EVENT log type records all UI accesses to any page at all, including records. Note that you can't just filter by a specific type (e.g. just event pages), so you'll need to do some post-processing.

  • Okay, the event log file does contain who and what record was access?? I can iterate over the log file that gets created.. I just want to capture if anyone opens a record.. Let me know... – NoNicknameSFDC Oct 5 '15 at 20:45
  • @NoNicknameSFDC Basically, you get a CSV file, so you have to read the log as a CSV file, and USER_ID and URI values to determine which record(s) were accessed. The documentation basically covers everything you need to know. – sfdcfox Oct 5 '15 at 21:30
