Activity Log for all cloud activities

to improve our monitoring, eg security monitoring, we need to be able to track activities on IBM Cloud / Bluemix.

who creates/deletes/update a service or app.

this is really necessary (by law) to bring use cases with higher security needs to IBM Cloud.

    This idea is marked as "shipped", but I don't think it's fully completed. I have enabled "activity tracker" from Log DNA, but I have noticed certain logs are missing in it.

    For example, when I create a new AIX instance, if it was successful, I can find related power-iaas log, but if it failed ( could be caused by image problem), there isn't anything in activity tracker.

    We have the same constraint in our company.

    CF provides a quite comprehensive list of audit events: (see Events block). That may cover the CF part. So in this case we would need a new option in the console so an administrator can access that information in a user friendly way. 

    Something similar will be needed for the new "resources" part.
