Summary Events
Summary events are emitted when a significant application level event occurs that would be of interest to the system auditor. The events provide a meaningful description of what happened in the database at the time the event took place. The events provide a set of attributes that identify who did what and provide context for the operation. Summary events were designed to be standalone so analysis can be done outside of Windchill using an analysis tool.
Before the auditing service captures a particular event, the event must be enabled in the auditing configuration file. For more information, see Configuring Audit Event Recording and Attributes Captured with Events.
