Auditing : Developing an Audit-enabled OpenEdge Application : Audit-enabling your OpenEdge application

Audit-enabling your OpenEdge application

The process of implementing auditing starts with application development. Whether you have an existing application, a new application, or have not yet implemented your own auditing solution, it all starts in the same place. How effective and valuable your application auditing will be at the production site lies in balancing application changes and functionality.
As an application developer, you must do certain things to audit-enable your OpenEdge application. Specifically, you must:
*Document your applications tables and fields so that audit policies can be generated at the production site
*Document the application-defined events that are coded within your application so that they can be configured at the production site
*Supply an application event definition file for all of the application-defined events used within your application so that those events are registered and can be enabled at the production site
*Write ABL and SQL report queries for the tables, fields, and application events contained within your application
* Implementing additional auditing options
* Updating an existing ABL application with auditing
* Audit-enabling your SQL application
