Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

Audit Logging Overview

The purpose of Identity Manager auditing is to record who did what to which Identity Manager objects, and when did they do it.

Audit events are handled by one or more publishers. By default, Identity Manager records audit events in the repository using the repository publisher. Filtering, with the help of audit groups, allows the administrator to select a subset of audit events for recording. Each publisher can be assigned one or more audit groups that are enabled initially.
