AM 7.3.0

Audit logging reference

AM writes log messages generated from audit events triggered by its components, instances, and other ForgeRock-based stack products.

Audit log format

This section presents the audit log format for each topic-based file, event names, and audit constants used in its log messages.

Access log format

Schema property Description

_id

Specifies a universally unique identifier (UUID) for the message object, such as a568d4fe-d655-49a8-8290-bfc02095bec9-491.

timestamp

Specifies the timestamp when AM logged the message, in UTC format to millisecond precision: yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.msZ. For example: 2015-11-14T00:16:04.653Z

eventName

Specifies the name of the audit event. For example, AM-ACCESS-ATTEMPT and AM-ACCESS-OUTCOME. For a list of audit event names, refer to Audit log events.

transactionId

Specifies the UUID of the transaction, which identifies an external request when it comes into the system boundary. Any events generated while handling that request will be assigned that transaction ID, so that you may see the same transaction ID even for different audit event topics. For example, 9c9e8d5c-2941-4e61-9c3c-8a990088e801.

AM supports a feature where trusted AM deployment with multiple instances, components, and ForgeRock stack products can propagate the transaction ID through each call across the stack. AM reads the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header and appends an integer to the transaction ID. Note that this feature is disabled by default. When enabled, this feature should filter the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header for connections from untrusted sources.

user.id

Specifies the universal identifier for authenticated users. For example, id=scarter,ou=user,o=shop,ou=services,dc=example,dc=com.

trackingIds

Specifies a unique random string generated as an alias for each AM session ID and OAuth 2.0 token. In releases prior to OpenAM 13.0.0, the contextId log property used a random string as an alias for the session ID. The trackingIds property also uses an alias when referring to session IDs, for example, [ "45b17894529cf74301" ].

OpenAM 13.0.0 extended this property to handle OAuth 2.0 tokens. In this case, whenever AM generates an access or grant token, it also generates unique random value and logs it as an alias. In this way, it is possible to trace back an access token back to its originating grant token, trace the grant token back to the session in which it was created, and then trace how the session was authenticated. An example of a trackingIds property in an OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect 1.0 environment is:

[ "1979edf68543ead001", "8878e51a-f2aa-464f-b1cc-b12fd6daa415", "3df9a5c3-8d1e-4ee3-93d6-b9bbe58163bc" ]
If the cross-upgrade session reference property is enabled, trackingIds will also contain a unique constant session identifier for session creation and upgrade events.

server.ip

Specifies the IP address of the AM server. For example, 127.0.0.1.

server.port

Specifies the port number used by the AM server. For example, 8080.

client.host

JDBC audit log tables

AM writes audit events to relational databases using the JDBC audit event handler. This section presents the columns for each audit table.

am_auditaccess

Column Datatype Description

id

VARCHAR(56) NOT NULL

Specifies a universally unique identifier (UUID) for the message object, such as a568d4fe-d655-49a8-8290-bfc02095bec9-491.

timestamp_

VARCHAR(29) NULL

Specifies the timestamp when AM logged the message, in UTC format to millisecond precision: yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.msZ. For example: 2015-11-14T00:16:04.653Z

transactionid

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the UUID of the transaction, which identifies an external request when it comes into the system boundary. Any events generated while handling that request will be assigned that transaction ID, so that you may see the same transaction ID for different audit event topics. For example, 9c9e8d5c-2941-4e61-9c3c-8a990088e801.

AM supports a feature where a trusted AM deployment with multiple instances, components, and ForgeRock products can propagate a transaction ID through each call across the stack. AM reads the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header and appends an integer to the transaction ID. Note that this feature is disabled by default. When enabled, this feature should filter the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header for connections from untrusted sources.

eventname

VARCHAR(255)

Specifies the name of the audit event. For example, AM-ACCESS-ATTEMPT and AM-ACCESS-OUTCOME. For a list of audit event names, see Audit log events.

http_request_cookies

MEDIUMTEXT NULL

Specifies a JSON map of key-value pairs and appears as its own property to allow for blacklisting fields or values. For example:

"cookies": "amlbcookie=01;
iPlanetDirectoryPro=\"AQIC5wM2LY....*AAJTSQACMfwT...*\";
iPlanetDirectoryPro=eyJ0eXAiOiJK....eyJzdWIiOiJkZ..."

Note: line feeds and truncated values in the example are for readability purposes.

http_response_headers

MEDIUMTEXT NULL

Captures the headers returned by AM to the client (that is, the inverse of http_request_headers). Note that AM does not currently populate this field.

VARCHAR(10) NULL

Specifies the response status of the request. For example, SUCCESS, FAILURE, ALLOWED, DENIED, or NULL.

response_statuscode

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the response status code, depending on the protocol.

For Common REST, HTTP failure codes are displayed but not HTTP success codes.

For PLL endpoints, PLL error codes are displayed.

response_detail

TEXT NULL

Specifies the message associated with the response status code. For example, a response status code of 401 has a response detail of { "reason": "Unauthorized" }.

response_elapsedtime

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the time to execute the access event, usually in millisecond precision.

response_elapsedtimeunits

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the elapsed time units of the response. For example, MILLISECONDS.

component

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the AM service utilized. For example, Server Info, Users, Config, Session, Authentication, Policy, OAuth.

am_auditauthentication

Column Datatype Description

id

VARCHAR(56) NOT NULL

Specifies a universally unique identifier (UUID) for the message object, such as a568d4fe-d655-49a8-8290-bfc02095bec9-491.

timestamp_

VARCHAR(29) NULL

Specifies the timestamp when AM logged the message, in UTC format to millisecond precision: yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss.msZ. For example: 2015-11-14T00:16:04.653Z

transactionid

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the UUID of the transaction, which identifies an external request when it comes into the system boundary. Any events generated while handling that request will be assigned that transaction ID, so that you may see the same transaction ID for different audit event topics. For example, 9c9e8d5c-2941-4e61-9c3c-8a990088e801.

AM supports a feature where a trusted AM deployment with multiple instances, components, and ForgeRock products can propagate a transaction ID through each call across the stack. AM reads the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header and appends an integer to the transaction ID. Note that this feature is disabled by default. When enabled, this feature should filter the X-ForgeRock-TransactionId HTTP header for connections from untrusted sources.

eventname

VARCHAR(255) NULL

Specifies the name of the audit event. For example, ` AM-LOGIN-MODULE-COMPLETED` and AM-LOGOUT. For a list of audit event names, see Audit log events.

Specifies the array of accounts used to authenticate, such as [ "amadmin" ] and [ "scarter" ].

context

MEDIUMTEXT

Not used.

entries

MEDIUMTEXT

Specifies the JSON representation of the details of an authentication module, chain, tree or node. AM creates an event as each module or node completes and a final event at the end of the chain or tree. For example:

         "moduleId":"DataStore",
         "info":{
            "moduleClass":"DataStore",
            "ipAddress":"127.0.0.1",
            "moduleName":"DataStore",
            "authLevel":"0"
         }
      }
   ]
}
{
