Sentinel is the preferred audit event destination for Identity Manager components when using Sentinel Rapid Deployment, Sentinel Log Manager, or Sentinel 7. Sentinel provides event forwarding capabilities that link Sentinel with Event Auditing Service (EAS). Sentinel link can be configured using the Identity Reporting Module and Sentinel Event Source Management (ESM). The event forwarding uses Sentinel link to forward the selected event types from Sentinel to EAS.
EAS captures log events that are associated with actions performed in the Identity Reporting Module, the Roles Based Provisioning Module (RBPM), the Role Mapping Administrator (RMA), Identity Manager, and the Identity Vault. For more information on EAS, refer to the Using Identity Manager 4.0.2 Reports.
