Get Audit Logs of the Bluemix Public Cloud

We would like to have a possibility to get the audit logs for the following layers / levels in the Bluemix environment:

organizational level:
- Which spaces were created / changed / deleted by whom
- Which users were invited / changed / deleted by whom

space level:
- Which apps / services / containers were created / changed / deleted by whom in the space "Mobile-Platform-QAS"

application level:
- Which user started / stopped the application "lbp-byol-MFP-QAS" in the space "Mobile-Platform-QAS"

Unfortunately this is currently not possible due to the usage of proxy server on our side.

The results of the event API does not contain the user ID which executed an action.

Instead of the real user ID a generic name is shown as "actor_name"

    Mark, I do not understand very well why this has been designed like this.

    1st Activity Tracker is a service that needs to be deployed in a cloud foundry space and region. This does not make sense now that CF is no longer the "heart" of ibm cloud.

     2nd, I cannot understand why I need to the deploy anything to have information about what people is doing in an account. This is something that should work out-of-the-box like other clouds provide:

    At least, all operations at the ibm cloud API level should be tracked. 

    Seems this is the right place for it, however I can only see login events right now:

    We believe this has been provided via the integration our platform services have with Activity Tracker.

    I have a customer who is looking for the same information of audit log on user log on - Which spaces were created / changed / deleted by whom and user authenticated on Bluemix Public. Is there an update or progress of making this event available on Activity Tracking (Kibana)? Thank you
