Certain columns in the Audit Log can be configured to store large amounts of data in the repository.
Several columns in the audit log have configurable column length limits. These columns are:
The message column
The parmNNvalue columns (where NN = 01, 02, 03, 04, or 05)
The xml column
For audit log column descriptions see Database Schema.
Column length limits can be changed by editing the RepositoryConfiguration object. For instructions on editing the RepositoryConfiguration object, see Editing Identity Manager Configuration Objects.
To change the column length limit for the message column, modify the maxLogMessageLength value.
To change the column length limit for the parmNNvalue column, modify the maxLogParmValueLength value. The same limit value applies to all five columns. (Individual column length values cannot be defined.)
To change the column length limit for the xml column, modify the maxLogXmlLength value.
A server restart is required in order for the new values to take effect.
The column length limit settings in the RepositoryConfiguration object determine the maximum amount of data that can be stored in a column. If the data to be stored exceeds these settings, Identity Manager truncates the data. See Audit Log Truncation for more information.
If you increase a column length setting in the RepositoryConfiguration object, also verify that the column size setting in your database is at least as large as the size configured in the RepositoryConfiguration object.
