Log message formats

  • Airlock IAM currently supports two types of log message formats considered API. These two types will remain backward compatible across version upgrades of Airlock IAM with the following guarantees:
  • Existing log formats will not be modified.
  • In structured logs, attributes may be added and enumerations may be extended with new values.
  • The two types of Airlock IAM log messages formats are characterized as follows:
  • Main log format is a line-oriented fixed-width log format.
  • Structured Log Format are JSON Objects with key=value pairs for logging attributes.

The Main log format is currently under full support but may be deprecated at some point in the future. The structured log format was newly introduced with IAM Version 7.1 and is recommended for new projects that integrate Airlock IAM log messages into a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) system.
