My audit log format is quite extensive, the V4 defaults are close to, though not exactly, what I had been doing. The V3 defaults are awful, they were based on V2, which was not well-thought out from a deployer's perspective.

I have gradually added more and more to the log as use cases arose, and virtually all of them are out of the box options now. I still have some custom extractors that pull actual data out of attributes and include a form of them in the audit records (e.g. I log abbreviations for affiliation, department ID, and IDM assigned ID number).

I of course have no idea what Cosign does so I can't comment.
