    Hello,

    Is there a way to record logins to the AdminUI in the smaccess.log ?

    Already setup audit log in the smconsole and Enable Enhance Tracing to 1?

    I can see a record in the server.log when I activate the debug ...
    Please note that I can see AdminLogin information when using APIs (POST token)

    PS/AdminUI 12.8SP1

    I recommend protecting the AdminUI with the Access Gateway.  It's a straight-forward config and will capture the logins in smaccess.log.  There are other benefits such as leveraging 2FA authentication schemes.

    Hello Julien,
    It's good to see you here on the communities. 

    This is my preferred method of managing access to the Policy Server Admin UI. 
    More information can be found here.
