Configure Auditing providers

An Auditing provider collects, stores, and distributes information about operating requests and the outcome of those requests for the purposes of non-repudiation. You can configure multiple Auditing providers in a security realm, but none are required. The default security realm does not include an Auditing provider.

WebLogic Server offers the following types of Auditing providers:

For information about using the WebLogic Auditing provider, see Configuring the WebLogic Auditing Provider in Securing WebLogic Server and Auditing Providers in Developing Security Providers for WebLogic Server.

You can also configure WebLogic Server to audit configuration actions. See Enable configuration auditing.
