20.6.1

BlueCat Gateway now maintains an access log file that records and stores a local copy of all users’ IP addresses who log into it. You can find a new log file, named login.log under the logs folder.

The login.log file records the following information for the login and logout events in JSON:

  1. Username
  2. Details (such as via UI endpoint, via REST API endpoint, via SSO, or via ACS)
  3. IP address
  4. Timestamp
Note: Each line in the login.log file is a valid JSON entry.

The following example is formatted for readability:

{
  "event":"login",
  "user":"portalUser",
  "detail":"via UI endpoint",
  "timestamp":"2020-06-01T14:51:07Z",
  "client_ip":"127.0.0.1"
}
{
  "event":"logout",
  "user":"portalUser",
  "detail":"via API",
  "timestamp":"2020-06-01T15:15:06Z",
  "client_ip":"127.0.0.1"
}
