You need to configure Configure audit settings, please checkout the following article



Additionally, you could also try this solution ( https://www.lepide.com/lepideauditor/sharepoint-auditing.html ) which provides audit reports.


To keep the audit logs for one week, you have to set the audit trimming option in SharePoint auditing.

However, the best practice is to store audit logs in a SIEM (there are some free versions available too), where you can aggregate, analyze, find correlations etc from different audit log sources and generate reports and alerts.

To get the audit logs out of SharePoint and forward them to a SIEM, you can use a product like LOGbinder for SharePoint. This way, as soon as the audit logs are transferred to your SIEM, they can be removed from SharePoint, freeing up database space.
