DataPower audit log file

The DataPower audit log is generated at run time, regardless of the Switch setting for MapAudit. If the TX Audit Log map audit setting is enabled on the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance for Interoperability Test Service, the audit log that the Appliance generates contains the same content as the map audit log file that the map running locally generates. If a problem occurs with the Interoperability Test Service that prevents DataPower map from running, and the TX Audit Log map audit setting is enabled on the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance, the audit log that the Appliance generates contains different content, with dummy data, than the audit log that the map running locally generates.

The DataPower audit log that the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance generates is saved as you specified in the MapAudit > AuditLocation setting on the DataPower map. If the MapAudit > AuditLocation setting on the DataPower map is set to Memory, the DataPower audit log is saved in the map directory and named after the executable map (map_name.log).

The audit log file generally has content, regardless of a successful execution. The contents of this file can be viewed in the Audit Log view, as well as in a text editor.
