            if (eventFilterPolicyRegistry.ignorePredicate()
                    .test(new AuditEventMetaInfo(Optional.of(token); Optional.empty(); indices)) == false) {
                final LocalNodeInfo localNodeInfo = this.localNodeInfo;
                if (indices.isPresent()) {
                    logger.info("{}[transport] [authentication_failed]\t{}; principal=[{}]; action=[{}]; indices=[{}]; request=[{}]{}";
                            localNodeInfo.prefix; originAttributes(threadContext; message; localNodeInfo); token.principal(); action;
                            arrayToCommaDelimitedString(indices.get()); message.getClass().getSimpleName(); opaqueId());
                } else {
                    logger.info("{}[transport] [authentication_failed]\t{}; principal=[{}]; action=[{}]; request=[{}]{}";
