    Modifies audit log settings (EE only)

    SYNOPSIS

    couchbase-cli setting-audit [--cluster <url>] [--username <user>]
        [--password <password>] [--list-filterable-events] [--get-settings]
        [--set] [--audit-enabled <1|0>] [--audit-log-path <path>]
        [--audit-log-rotate-interval <seconds>] [--audit-log-rotate-size <bytes>]
        [--disabled-users <user-list>] [--disable-events <event-list>]

    DESCRIPTION

    Auditing is used to observe the action of users in the cluster. It is usually turned on for security purposes to ensure that those without permission to access information do not access it. By default auditing is disabled in Couchbase. The setting-audit command can be used to enable and disable auditing, set the auditing log path, and change the auditing log rotation interval; the command can also be used to retrieve the current auditing configuration, retrieve the auditable events and descriptions, and disable auditing for certain users and events.

    OPTIONS

    -c
    --cluster

    Specifies the hostname of a node in the cluster. See the HOST FORMATS section for more information on specifying a hostname.

    -u
    --user <username>

    Specifies the username of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error.

    -p
    --password <password>

    Specifies the password of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error. If this argument is specified, but no password is given then the command will prompt the user for a password through non-echoed stdin. You may also specify your password by using the environment variable CB_REST_PASSWORD.

    --list-filterable-events

    Returns a table or a JSON list (if --output json used) with all the event IDs with there descriptions.

    --get-settings

    Returns the current audit settings including which events are disabled and which are enabled.

    --set

    Sets the cluster audit settings.

    --audit-enabled <num>

    Specifies whether or not auditing is enabled. To enabled auditing set this option to "1". To disable auditing set this option to "0".

    --audit-log-path <path>

    Specifies the auditing log path. This should be a path to a folder where the auditing log is kept. The folder must exist on all servers in the cluster.

    --audit-log-rotate-interval <seconds>

    Specifies the audit log rotate interval. This is the interval in which the current audit log will be replaced with a new empty audit log file. The log file is rotated to ensure that the audit log does not consume too much disk space. The minimum audit log rotate interval is 15 minutes (900 seconds).

    --audit-log-rotate-size <bytes>

    Specifies the audit log rotate size. This is the size at which the current audit log will be replaced with a new empty audit log file. The log file is rotated to ensure that the audit log does not consume too much disk space. The minimum audit log rotate size is 0 bytes and maximum is 524,288,000 (500MB). When it is set to 0 the log will not be rotated based on size.

    --disabled-users <user-list>

    A comma separated list of users to ignore events from.

    --disable-events <events-list>

    A comma separated list of events IDs to disable auditing for (e.g 8243,8255,8257). To retrieve information of what event ID maps to what event use the --list-filterable-events to retrieve a list of IDs with descriptions.

    HOST FORMATS

    When specifying a host for the couchbase-cli command the following formats are expected:

    • couchbase://<addr>

    • <addr>:<port>

    • http://<addr>:<port>

    It is recommended to use the couchbase://<addr> format for standard installations. The other two formats allow an option to take a port number which is needed for non-default installations where the admin port has been set up on a port other that 8091.

    EXAMPLES

    To get the current audit settings run the command below.

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --get-settings

    If auditing is disabled the expected output will be of the form (all the commands can return json if --output json is provided):

    Audit enabled: False
    UUID: 44726500
    Log path: /opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/logs
    Rotate interval: 86400
    Rotate size: 20971520
    Disabled users: []

    To retrieve the list of events that can be audited use the command:

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --list-filterable-events
    ID    | Module         | Name                                           | Description

    To enable auditing on a cluster and set the audit log to the default logs folder on a Linux installation with a log rotate interval of 7 days, run the command below.

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --set --audit-enabled 1 --audit-log-rotate-interval 604800 \
     --audit-log-path /opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/logs

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --set --audit-enabled 1 --audit-log-rotate-size 20971520 \
     --audit-log-path /opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/logs

    To enable auditing on a cluster, set the audit log to the default logs folder on a Linux installation with a log rotate size of 20MB, disable auditing for users backup and restore, and disable auditing for event 40964 and 40963, run the command below.

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --set --audit-enabled 1 --audit-log-rotate-size 20971520 \

     --disabled-users backup,restore --disable-events 40964,40963

    To disable auditing run the following command.

    $ couchbase-cli setting-audit -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \
     --password password --set --audit-enabled 0

    ENVIRONMENT AND CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

    CB_REST_USERNAME

    Specifies the username to use when executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -u/--username argument on the command line.

    CB_REST_PASSWORD

    Specifies the password of the user executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -p/--password argument on the command line. It also allows the user to ensure that their password are not cached in their command line history.
