Security Audit Log - Event AUY folder-path\file-name variable too short

Hello Experts,

I am trying to fulfill an auditing requirement to log all opening of attachments from GOS in the SAP ABAP system.

We are using a combination of RAL and SAL to gather the data we require, however.....

With SAL we use the event AUY (Download &A Bytes to File &C) to log the file name which is opened from the GOS attachment list in the SAP ABAP system, but the record in the SAL log file and SM20 show the file path\name of the opened file as being truncated, (and thus we cannot actually identify the full file name which has been downloaded).

The output into the SAL logfile is similar to this:


so we get the folder path... and the timestamp... but not the actual distinguishing name of the file which was originally attached.

Does anyone know how to prevent SAL and event AUY from truncating the file path\name which is saved into the SAL logfile or extend the relevant field length.... or have ideas on an alternate solution?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
