JsonStdoutAuditEventHandler

Logs events to JSON standard output (stdout).

Declare the configuration in an audit service, as described in AuditService.

Usage

{
  "name": string,
  "type": "AuditService",
  "config": {
    "config": {},
    "eventHandlers": [
    {
      "class": "org.forgerock.audit.handlers.json.stdout.JsonStdoutAuditEventHandler",
      "config": {
        "name": configuration expression<string>,
        "topics": [ configuration expression<string>, ... ],
        "elasticsearchCompatible": configuration expression<boolean>
      }
    }
  }
}

Configuration

"name": configuration expression<string>, required

The name of the event handler.

"topics": array of configuration expression<string>, required

An array of one or more topics that this event handler intercepts. IG can record the following audit event topics:

  • access: Log access audit events. Access audit events occur at the system boundary, and include the arrival of the initial request and departure of the final response.

    To record access audit events, configure AuditService inline in a route, or in the heap.

  • customTopic: Log custom audit events. To create a topic for a custom audit event, include a JSON schema for the topic in your IG configuration.

    To record custom audit events, configure AuditService in the heap, and refer to it from the route or subroutes.

For an example of how to set up custom audit events, see Record Custom Audit Events.

elasticsearchCompatible: configuration expression<boolean>, optional

Set to true to enable compatibility with ElasticSearch JSON format. For more information, see the ElasticSearch documentation.

Default: false

Example

In the following example, a JsonStdoutAuditEventHandler logs audit events. For an example of setting up and testing this configuration, see Recording Access Audit Events to Standard Output.
