Standardize SFTP/FTP Server and client logs for external dashboard consumption like ELK

We are using the SFTP / FTP server and client logs to monitor user activity via Dashboard. We want to provide communication level visibility to our business users from our enterprise application that stores all our B2B data.

Its very difficult to track each user session since the log does not seem to have any session id information to tie them together. It would be very useful if all the server and client logs have similar logging structure which will include user info/session id/ put / get / file name / date time etc so that it's easier to integration with external interfaces and provide self service capabilities for the users.

What is your industry? Travel & Transportation
How will this idea be used?

This feature will provide means to integration with external interfaces / applications and provide self service capabilities for the business / technology users.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. We have added this to our roadmap and will be looking to prioritize this in the near term to align with Red Hat OpenShift's cluster logging service (EFK)
