We have setup up SP 2013 and enabled auditing. The issue is when I try to run a custom report on a sub site I get the error...It does not allow me to select using browse buttons in either the "Save location" or the "Restrict the report to:" browse.

Sorry, something went wrong

Report contains no data.

I have included screenshot of what I am running. When I return to the screen after the error the "Restrict the report to" checkbox is unticked and the text field greyed out.

enter image description here

As a foot note I have also tried this directly from a custom list item (custom lists I need to get this working on). I click on Compliance details > Generate audit log report with the following errors: When I attempt to change the save location

Sorry, something went wrong Reports cannot be stored at '/Documents'. Reports can only be stored in a document library in the current site.

When I do not change the list save location

Sorry, something went wrong Report contains no data.

  • I was able to resolve the above issue by selecting a document library as location and selecting a higher Date Range. May 2, 2017 at 13:01

You must be a site collection administrator, then you can do:

Site Actions

Site Settings

Modify All Site Settings

Site Collection Administration

Site collection audit settings

Cofigure Audit Settings - and check the boxes that are appropriate for your case.

This article help you to configure audit setting and view audit log reports from Site settings: https://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/126012-how-to-track-changes-on-sharepoint-server-2013


  • This does not solve my problem. As mentioned from the outset - auditing has been enabled. The issue still is unresolved
