    Title:
    Connect for PHP initConnectAPI() user authentication change username
    Content:

    Hello,

    When connecting by using initConnectAPI() I notice that you can do so without specifying a username and password and the documentation recommends this'. This has some impact regarding accountability as the Audit Log stamps the action as performed by 'UserName'.

    However when you do specify a username and password of a Connect enabled account , it correctly comes in audit log with specified username, But when not specifying the username & password it takes one default user, I want to change this Username so need to know where it is configured.

    Thanks in advance.

    Better create a specific user account for connect operation, so that you can easily track the transaction.

      The default user name should be system and that cannot be changed.
      If you wan to report on this, you'll need to create a user OR use the source columns to see what the source is.

      Yes, Ideally default user name should be system and in Audit Log it should show system,but in my case it is showing some other user name. I want system there in Audit Log, how it should be done?

      Thanks
