Auditing context architecture
One aspect of applying context to auditing is determining what depth, or how many levels, of context to apply. As current-day applications are far more complex than those of years past, some amount of support for multiple levels of context must be available.
OpenEdge auditing supplies four levels of context information. The following figure illustrates the various auditing context levels available within a running OpenEdge application. Keep in mind that not all context features must be applied to every auditing situation.
