An audit event is a specific condition of the server or a particular change made in the server that is recorded. These events might range from the trivial to the vital. A policy is used to define the level of events that need be audited. Events might also be categorized based on functions such as Authentication, Authorization and Security Database Modification, where:
- Authentication - Covers all authentication requests within the MQ server.
- Authorization - Cover all authorization checks irrespective of whether a User is authorized to perform the action.
- Security Database Modification – Covers all changes made to the security store such as creation/deletion of User/Group, setting of ACL permissions and so on.
