WebSphere Audit Functionality

Using the Audit feature we want to be able to log any type of configuration change.
What was the change, at what time and with what userid.
Currently the only filter that allows that is “RESOURCE_ACCESS:SUCCESS ”, the problem is that it logs everything, every click on the was console generates an entry in the audit log, even those action that do not represent a configuration change, making the audit log unsuable.
We would like to have an additional filter like “RESOURCE_CHANGED:SUCCESS ”.
We have experimented with the checkpoint functionality and the filter ADMIN_REPOSITORY_SAVE as indicated at : , but it will only log that the repository was changed and not what was changed.
As per our test, the server.xml appeared as “delta” on the checkpoint but not what exacly was changed and by whom.

    I work as a WebSphere Administator on a contract for the United States Navy. All Deparatment of Defense deployments of WebSphere require the auditing of events and of configuration changes is IBM WAS is to meet the Security Technical Implementation Guidelines.

    I am not sure why this is considered an update to the auditing feature rather than a bug.
