  • If auto_log_auth_user config key and Auth::check() are true, Auth::user() data are auto added to the context array (auth_user key)
  • If you need to use $guard to get the authenticated user, turn false the auto_log_auth_user config key and add it manually in additionnal data array
  • Don't use special/accentuated chars in context key for additionals data
