New Auditing Mechanism in Ent3.2, Comm. 3.2r

Hello all,

I've been trying to do some work for an Alfresco Enterprise customer that involves the evaluation and configuring of auditing behaviour.  The customer will mostly be using Alfresco Share.

As the customer will soon be migrating to Enterprise 3.2, I've been trying to look at evaluating the configure-ability, richness and performance of the new auditing mechanism in E3.2.

I've been running into some problems working out how to configure the new auditing mechanism.

I understand that data is passed to the audit component, keyed by some "path", that this is filtered through a path mapper to bring together related input paths into an "Application" and that an individual Application is then configured to store specific values using data extractors.  What I'm struggling to understand is what the input paths actually are.  They don't look like FQCNs.  I've tried looking at the Wiki, the RM source code and the unit test for the 5015 auditing mechanism but haven't found anything to indicate how to find out what input paths are available and how they relate to the Alfresco source code.

Can anyone help me with this?  Or does anyone have a sample audit configuration file they can pass me that audits a the core Alfresco repository, or Share, using the new mechanism?

I've found another thread on this forum discussing auditing in 3.2, but it seems to focus on the "old" auditing mechanism.

Thanks in advance,

Simon
