  3. Select Add to start configuring a new audit log.

  4. Make sure the first column, Enable, is checked to ensure that the auditing is on.

  5. Fill in the configuration fields.

    Name Required Description



    Logging file name pattern; both absolute and relative paths can be used (the path is relative to the location of the server configuration file—typically Files>etc>mdm.serverConfig). The default value is: ../storage/mda_audit%g.log. The following special characters can be used in the file name pattern:

    • / - local pathname separator

    • %t - system temporary directory

    • %h - value of the "user.home" system property

    • %g - generation number to distinguish rotated logs

    • %u - a unique number to resolve naming conflicts

    • %% - translates to a single percent sign "%"
