Remote logging allows a client using the Client SDK to create log records on an instance of OpenSSO Enterprise deployed on a remote machine. Remote logging is useful in the following situations:
When the login URL in the Naming Service of an OpenSSO Enterprise instance points to a remote OpenSSO Enterprise instance, and a trust relationship between the two instances has been configured. (An example of a trust relationship would be servers in a site.)
When the OpenSSO Enterprise API are installed in a remote OpenSSO Enterprise instance, and a client application or a simple Java class running on the OpenSSO Enterprise server uses them. A SSOToken for the subject of the log records and the identity doing the logging is required. The identity doing the logging must also be authorized to write to the logs.
