We have articles on a site that seem to be deleting themselves. i've looked in the recycle bin and can find the articles when I view by all users (over 3000 users) but when I check the users that have access to that section of the site it doesn't show for any of them.
Is there a way to see who deleted the article another way?
Check Kentico event log. There should be event with Event Code = "DELETEDOC". It will show you the user, who performed an action.
However, the event log doesn't go back far enough to see. is there a table in the database?
Try to check [CMS_VersionHistory] table. But you will not find related information there in case document was removed with it's history.
Check out the Recycle Bin app. You can look by user or by site or object. As long as it wasn't "destroyed" you can find it in there. I'd also suggest upping your limit on the event log. Probably at the default 1000. I typically set it to 50,000 during dev and trim it back on live unless they need it.
yes, the recycle bin is right place to look if the Settings -> Versioning and Synchronization -> Object versioning -> Delete objects to recycle bin is not set to No.
