Audit Log Filter security

The feature is in tech preview.

The Audit Log Filter plugin generates audit log filter files. The directory that contains these files should be accessible only to the following:

  • Users who must be able to view the log

  • Server must be able to write to the directory

The files are not encrypted by default and may contain sensitive information.

The default name for the file in the data directory is audit_filter.log. If needed, use the audit_log_filter_file system variable at server startup to change the location. Due to the log rotation, multiple audit log files may exist.
