Log IP of login attempts?

I've seen in other questions the IP listed (JIRA though: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/271728/concerning-jira-security-log-entries). Is there a reason we don't have the same in our Confluence logs? A setting I'm missing?

2014-05-28 10:33:04,352 WARN [TP-Processor3] [atlassian.seraph.auth.DefaultAuthenticator] login login : 'potato' tried to login but they do not have USE permission or weren't found. Deleting remember me cookie.

Hi Stephen,

You can achieve that on Confluence by Enabling User Access Logging

Perfect, thanks!

Can this also be configured to catalog as much information as I have in the JIRA example? Specifically, IP and username on a failure? It appears we can get IP of failed attempts, but not the username, that's only recorded on a successful login.
