    This information is already available as part of the security Audit logs. No change to Navigator is required.

    are you asking about getting details from the Audit Journals ? This is possible to day using SQL Services. Is that a satisfactory way of finding what you are looking for ?

    The information desired is in the security audit log. Doing a DSPJRN QAUDJRN *TYPE5 into an output file will provide you with the IP address of the events in question.
