I enabled auto trading for PaperAccount1, and activated a strategy in strategy monitor. But while the strategy generated trades in strategy monitor, nothing showed up in the Local trading history for this account. Did I miss anything? Thank you for your help!

The trades themselves should not propagate to the Accounts window. It's the alerts (that are 0 in your SM) that should do.

Thanks Eugene, according to the user guide, the Trades number in Strategy monitor is for theoretical trades, so what is theoretical trades?

All trades are theoretical (as noted in the User Guide > Orders > Portfolio Synch). In this context, the SM-generated alerts convert themselves into Positions.
