Re: Extenral authentication audit

Hi Tim,

We don't specifically log data about the user account in the audit log aside from its id of course.

I am guessing that the authentication method a user account uses is not a dynamic property for the individual user accounts.

So I would:
1. Define all of the user account logging in via external authentication
2. Make sure the logins for these user account are audited
3. Make sure all of the ACL statements affecting these user accounts are audited.

Note also that if you are using proxy user accounts to authenticate the external users you would get the proxy_user attribute for the connect event filled in with the proxy_user used.

If you feel that this is not enough and more attributes are needed please file a feature request in with the exact list of attributes you think you need and we will consider it.
