In Junos is there any way I can monitor SSH or HTTPS login activity though logs? I would like to receive alerts if there are any changes made in the current config.

  • There are tools which can retrieve configurations periodically (or after changes) and report any changes, that may be a more useful approach. Software recommendations are off-topic here though.

In Junos you can both of these requirements are captured in the default messages log file.

You can also create a dedicated log file for this if you want:

set system syslog file ACTIVITY auth any
set system syslog file ACTIVITY change-log any
