Allow Audit Logging to go to Standard Out

With the current version of the Audit Logging service, it is limited to SIEM integration of QRadar or Splunk. Customers have other tools for common log capture and can better integrate if Audit logs are more readily available in stdout or stderr.

NOTE: Audit Log is part of foundation services, putting this request against the cloud pak where this issue arose, but applicable to all.

    Hi Doug, thanks for raising this - it's something we're looking at in the context of the Platform Navigator output - if you'd like to see what we're doing and comment, please give us a ping on slack.

    One particular customer uses AWS extensively and wish all log information to end up in CloudWatch. Other customers may have similar std preferences for aggregation for other clouds or on prem.

    For format, it should be identifiable as an Audit type log and easily manipulated (i.e. xml, json, yaml) - but not sure it has to be a specific standards based format provided the customer can configure their tool to identify audit events, especially ones that may need attention.

    The Audit Logging service has been removed from the current version of Foundation. Services. We are working on the next evolution of audit for CP4I.

    For the request to put Audit in stdout/stderr, could you give some more information as to (a) what kind of systems you'd be wanting to read this audit information and (b) what kind of data formats it would need to be in the stdout stream please?
