Chapter 11 Oracle Fine Grained Auditing


Note the columns referenced in the audit_column and audit_condition parameters are different. This might create some confusion on how various situations are handled. It can be understood by using a few simple rules.

  • If the query selects the columns mentioned in the audit_column parameter, then check the next step; otherwise, this is not a candidate for auditing.

  • If the query selects rows that satisfy the clause in the audit_condition, then the statement is audited; otherwise, this is not audited.

Sometimes the query might reference the columns implicitly, not explicitly naming them. The auditing is triggered in that case, too. For instance, the following query is audited based on the policy defined earlier.

select * from claims;

Even though the columns are not named, the fact that all columns are selected triggers the audit. Another case is

select claim_id from claims where ssn = ‘123456789’;

The following table shows the expected audit triggering in different scenarios.

The above text is an excerpt from:
