Alfresco auditing system allows to filter by user using the parameter:


This is interesting, however it does not fit with large organizations system management.

Typically, a large organization will put users in Groups and assign permissions to Groups.
In particular you will have a group of administrators that have admin power.

As admin can do very nasty things (like breaking alfresco) the customer wants to audit this group of admin actions.
Currently they would have to maintain the list of admin in two places:
1) the ldap directory
2) the alfresco audit config parameter: audit.filter.alfresco-access.transaction.user

This is against best practices.

Please implement a feature that would allow auditing based on groups.
