Access Expert SEQ Log Installation Information
EcoStruxure Access Expert
Access Expert Hosted V3
The SEQ Log is a valuable troubleshooting tool to be installed separately from Access Expert
Access Expert utilizes a system logging application called SEQ which is used for troubleshooting and diagnostic purposes. While this service is not technically required to run any of the Feenics services, it provides valuable information when troubleshooting.

Bookmark or Favorite
It may be beneficial to set the SEQ logs as a bookmark for easy access.
The example below is from Chrome.
Click on the 'Settings' option at the top of the page to access and change the defaults.
Initially after clicking on Settings, the API keys page opens. Add an API key if required.
From the settings page, select 'Retention' from the left-hand side menu.
Once at the Retention page, click add and set the retention policy. The Access Expert/Feenics default is 21 days. This is adjustable to your needs, however, it is recommended to never go below 7 days.
Note: Seq will periodically delete events covered by the policy based on their timestamp. Disk space will be reclaimed by a background compaction process and may not be available immediately.
Default is ‘all events’
