Comprehensive audit logging in standard logging mode

Why - The ability to monitor for unexpected configuration change, and provide supporting evidence to any security investigation. This is required for tight security monitoring, and potentially for prosecution of rogue actors.

Who - All IBM customers using DataPower Gateway would benefit.

How - Log all administrative configuration actions of a logged-in admin user, from logon to logoff, with everything in between.

    Hi – Thank you for raising this enhancement request. This section ( in our documentation contains the audit events in the 0x824XXXX range that can be written to the audit log.

    For example, [0x8240001c] event code will report a configuration addition (like key 'alice' - Configuration added). Similarly, [0x82400025] event code will report a logged-out activity.

    You mentioned that “Apparently it logs logon, only a subset of the admin actions, and not logoff.” If there are any audit events (as documented per the above link) that are not captured in your environment (like logged-out activity), I believe that would be better handled as a support case.

    But if there are any cases that are not covered with our existing audit event codes, please specify those cases. We are happy to discuss this over a meeting. (please contact <>)
