»Audit Logging

Enterprise

This feature requires Consul Enterprise with the Governance and Policy module.

Consul Enterprise v1.8.0 adds audit logging as a feature that captures a clear and actionable log of authenticated events (both attempted and committed) that Consul processes and compiles them into a JSON format for easy export. These events contain a timestamp, the operation performed, and the user who initiated the action.

Audit logging enables security and compliance teams within an organization to get greater insight into Consul access and usage patterns.

For more experience leveraging Consul's audit logging functionality, we suggest you explore our HashiCorp Learn tutorial Capture Consul Events with Audit Logging. For detailed configuration information on configuring the Consul Enterprise's snapshot agent, review the Consul Audit Log documentation.
