SPAuditQuery Class

Defines a query of the audit entries of the SharePoint database.

System.Object
  Microsoft.SharePoint.SPAuditQuery

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
Available in Sandboxed Solutions: No

public sealed class SPAuditQuery

The fundamental scope of any query is always a site collection; but you can use the members of the class to restrict a query to particular date ranges, users, event types, lists, and list items.

This class is primarily used as a parameter to the GetEntries(SPAuditQuery) method.

You cannot use this class to query the SharePoint database for anything other than the records of audited events.

The following example (from Item-Level Auditing with SharePoint Server 2007) shows this class in use.

SPAuditQuery wssQuery = new SPAuditQuery(siteCollection);
wssQuery.RestrictToListItem(item);
SPAuditEntryCollection auditCol = site.Audit.GetEntries(wssQuery);

foreach (SPAuditEntry entry in auditCol) {
  // get info from audit log
}

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
