Artifactory maintains an access log containing all security-related events, their source IP and context. Events include information on accept/reject of logins, and download, browsing and deployment of artifacts.

The access log is located at $JFROG_HOME/artifactory/var/artifactory/log/artifactory-access.log.

You can also view and download the access log from the Artifactory UI. In the Administration module go to Artifactory | System Logs.
