  1. Log in to your IBM Federated Directory Server.

  2. In the navigation pane, under Common Settings, click Monitoring.

  3. On the Monitoring page, click the JSA tab.

  4. To indicate that you want to monitor security events, on the JSA page, select Enabled .

  6. In the Map file field, specify the path and file name of the map file that configures the various JSA LEEF attributes for the event.

  7. Click Select to browse for the map file. The default value points to the LDAPSync/ file.

  8. In the Date format mask field, specify a standard Java SimpleDateFormat mask to use for date values that are written in mapped LEEF attributes.

    This value controls both the value of the devTimeFormat attribute and the formatting of date values in the event. The default value is the ISO 8601 standard mask, MMM dd yy HH:mm:ss, which creates a string, Oct 16 12 15:15:57.
