AUDIT_USER(5)             FreeBSD File Formats Manual            AUDIT_USER(5)

NAME
     audit_user -- specifies events to be audited for the given users

DESCRIPTION
     The audit_user file specifies which audit event classes are to be audited
     for the given users.  If specified, these flags are combined with the
     system-wide audit flags in the audit_control file to determine which
     classes of events to audit for that user.  These settings take effect
     when the user logs in.

     Each line maps a user name to a list of classes that should be audited
     and a list of classes that should not be audited.  Entries are of the
     form:

           username:alwaysaudit:neveraudit

     In the format above, alwaysaudit is a set of event classes that are
     always audited, and neveraudit is a set of event classes that should not
     be audited.  These sets can indicate the inclusion or exclusion of multi-
     ple classes, and whether to audit successful or failed events.  See
     audit_control(5) for more information about audit flags.

     Example entries in this file are:

           root:lo,ad:no
           jdoe:-fc,ad:+fw

     These settings would cause login/logout and administrative events that
     succeed on behalf of user root to be audited.  No failure events are
     audited.  For the user jdoe, failed file creation events are audited,
     administrative events are audited, and successful file write events are
     never audited.
