Pinned topic Cannot find audit log file while using IMS server

‏2013-01-19T08:31:36Z |
Dear All,

I want to send IMS Server audit log ( eg username, date, logon successful, etc) to other device for audit purpose, but I cannot find stdout.log file in IMS installation folder.

But let say when I create an user and sso to the internal applications using this new user, I still can find the this action in audit data for reporting menu

why I cannot find stdout.log file and where exactly IMS server stores the audit data
Please advice,
Thanks

    Hi achmadz,
    I'm not sure about how to do that, but from my information hope this help.

    In "Deployment Guide - Chapter 13. Logging, auditing, and reporting" document, it say "IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On can be configured to forward its audit log records to any external SysLog server ..."

    I can't find more information about how to do that but I see in "ISAM ESSO IMS Configuration Utility" console, at Advanced settings >> IMS Server. Expand "Logging >> Syslog". There is "Syslog server hostname" field.

    I the other way, as I know the log was kept in database. There are many database views such as "IMSLOGUSERACTIVITYR" that you may use with your audit device.

    These types of logs are not stored in the stdout.log file. They are tracked in the database IMSLog* tables. You can use TCR Reports or other tools to pull the data from the DB.
