Changing audit message levels

You can adjust the audit message levels to increase or decrease the number of messages recorded for each audit message category to match the detail level you require.

Before you begin


  1. Select Configuration > Audit.
  2. For each category of audit message, select an audit level from the drop-down list:
    Audit level Description
    Off No audit messages from the category are logged.
    Error Only error messages are logged—audit messages for which the result code was not "successful" (SUCS).
    Normal Standard transactional messages are logged—the messages listed in this guide for the category.
    Debug Trace messages are logged; for troubleshooting only.

    The messages included for any particular level include those that would be logged at the higher levels. Therefore, the Normal level includes all of the Error messages.

  3. Under Audit Protocol Headers, enter the name of the HTTP request headers to be included in Protocol audit messages. Use an asterisk “*” as a wildcard, or use the escape sequence “\*” as a literal asterisk. Use the plus sign to create a list of header name fields for entry.
    Note: This field applies to S3/Swift requests only.
    When such HTTP headers are found in a request, they are included in the audit message under the field HTRH.
    Note: Because they are used for Protocol audit messages, request headers are logged only if the audit level for Protocol is not Off.
  4. Click Save.
