Description:
The commercial edition of Workbench can only partially configure and monitor Audit plugin.

How to repeat:
Connect to a MySQL Enterprise server (5.6.21) and enable auditing.

View in section "Option File". The tab "logging" offers to enable audit-log. But nothing else. There are 10 more my.cnf options possible but these cannot be added via workbench.

Go to section "Status and System Variables".
In the tab "Status Variables" no audit-related status variable is displayed. 
In the tab "System Variables" the 12 variables are listed but only in the "all" category. There is no separate category "Audit" available.

Suggested fix:
Add the config file options to the option file editor.
Add the status variables in a separate category "Audit" to the status variable display.
Add a category "Audit" to the system variables display.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.3.4 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The "Option File" and "Status and System Variable" sections were missing
information for the Audit Log plugin.

Thank you for the bug report.
