Find out who created the object in Checkpoint

Jump to solution

In Checkpoint, how do I find out who originally created the host object? Also how do I find out who edited it? Thank you in advance.

Another method is to use show-object management API command which in full details level return the creator and the last modifier (along with more meta info).

e.g.

> show object uid d3bc2c89-ca4d-43e0-8d3c-e926dec6ba9b details-level full

object: 
 uid: "d3bc2c89-ca4d-43e0-8d3c-e926dec6ba9b"
 name: "CP_default_Office_Mode_addresses_pool"
 type: "network"
 .

 .

 .
 meta-info: 
  lock: "locked by current session"
  validation-state: "ok"
  last-modify-time: 
   posix: 1550368773740
   iso-8601: "2019-02-17T03:59+0200"
  last-modifier: "System"
  creation-time: 
   posix: 1550368773740
   iso-8601: "2019-02-17T03:59+0200"
  creator: "System"
  read-only: false

Just search the Audit Log and check who created it.

In the Object Explorer (top 2nd from left Objects -> Object Explorer) you can see who last modified the object and when.

Keep in mind that after every migration all you will see is system and the migration date.

This is all well and good but how do you convert the Object Name to UID?

show object is a generic endpoint for all object types.
UID is required in this case.

If you only know the name of the object, you can get the same details by showing the type of object in question by name with details-level full. 
For example, using the network object named HQ LAN:

> show network name "HQ LAN" details-level full

uid: "da1909e1-f668-4464-bc55-5ba18b1568b4"
name: "HQ LAN"
type: "network"
domain:
uid: "41e821a0-3720-11e3-aa6e-0800200c9fde"
name: "SMC User"
domain-type: "domain"
broadcast: "allow"
subnet4: "22.20.105.0"
mask-length4: 24
subnet-mask: "255.255.255.0"
nat-settings:
auto-rule: false
groups:
- uid: "90132213-0e4c-45a6-b229-07f7e95e61ce"
name: "Corporate LANs"
type: "group"
domain:
uid: "41e821a0-3720-11e3-aa6e-0800200c9fde"
name: "SMC User"
domain-type: "domain"
members:
- "da1909e1-f668-4464-bc55-5ba18b1568b4"
