Tacacs accounting support


I have several clusters spread across the globe and i am using Tacacs+ authentication. Does anyone know if checkpoint  R77.30 or R80.10 supports accounting features like send to the tacacs server all the commands and configurations made by the serveral administrators? 

Thank you

I assume we're talking about Gaia OS commands.

Through TACACS+ Accounting? Not to my knowledge.

However, the commands entered are sent to syslog, which could be centrally collected.

Indeed i did not find any information about the accouting on tacacs but i will parse and use the syslog. Thank you for the tip! Smiley Happy

You may see some noise with this method as several automated commands from admin will also show up.

For users who don't log in as admin, it will definitely be helpful to know what they did Smiley Happy
