4.2 Enabling and Disabling Auditing Events

When a SaaS Operations Administrator enables auditing, Identity Governance can send audit event information to any combination of the following:

  • An application server log

  • A separate log file

  • A syslog destination

  • A database table (through JDBC)

Audit event logs allow you to provide evidence that you comply with regulations. The SaaS Operations Administrator must first set the audit targets for selected modules, and then enable or disable audit event logging for specific packages or event IDs.

NOTE:If you delete an audit log file while auditing is enabled and the server is running, a new audit log file will not automatically be generated. If you need to delete an audit log file while auditing is enabled, you must either first disable auditing and then enable it again, or you must restart the server.
