      Steps to reproduce

      • make sure that you have this parameter in your alfresco-global.properties:

      • start Alfresco
      • login as administrator (admin, admin)
      • go to this link: http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/audit/query/alfresco-access
      • you should see and entry for the successful login of the admin user.
      • try to login with an unknown user (eg: username/password: aaa/123)

      The above link: http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/api/audit/query/alfresco-access, does not show the failed login attempt entry of the unknown user aaa
