While the events are not configurable, Log4j 2 configuration settings in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/conf/log4j2.xml file can be adjusted to deliver the desired level of detail surrounding each event.

Each log entry contains information relating to the event, including:

  • Time the event occurred on the PingFederate server
  • Administrator username performing the action
  • Authentication method
  • Client IP
  • HTTP method
  • REST endpoint
  • HTTP status code

Each of these fields is separated by a vertical pipe (|) for ease of parsing.
