Audit content not work

I have an installation of Alfresco Enterprise v4.1.1.
According to the documentation http://docs.alfresco.com/4.1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.alfresco.enterprise.doc%2Ftasks%2Faudit-config.h...
I should have log about login and actions performed on documents (READ, MOVE, etc.).

When I use http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/audit/query/alfresco-access?verbose=true,
I not view all the audit log.

I am able to view some audit data but I see some audit log.I should see when people log authenticates to Alfresco and when move and read files ?
I'll also changes in documents, I edit the properties, I move documents, but no logging adds about these actions.
Even if I create the file C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension\audit-log4j.properties I don't have no linet about the audit in the catalina.out

Anyone can help me ?

C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco-global.properties

# Enable audit in general
audit.enabled=true

# Enable the alfresco-access audit application
audit.alfresco-access.enabled=true

# Enable the auditing of sub-actions. Normally disabled as these values are
# not normally needed by audit configurations, but may be useful to
# developers
#audit.alfresco-access.sub-actions.enabled=true

Re: Audit content not work

You seem to be confusing audit with logging.  Audit is not controlled through log4j settings.

Re: Audit content not work

Hi,
I know that the logging and auditing are two separate things.
If we forget the configurations made ​​in audit-log4j.properties.
If I put this configuration in place:

C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco-global.properties
<blockcode>
audit.enabled=true
audit.alfresco-access.enabled=true
</blockcode>


And I use this file

C:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\audit\alfresco-audit-access.xml

I should not see entries in the audit about my attempts authentication?
I call http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/audit/query/alfresco-access?verbose=true
and he have nothing about my attempts authentications

I guess I'm missing something in my setup to have in my audit entries my attempts authentication in Alfresco.
Or, maybe my files is not at the good path.

thanks you very much  !!
