DROP AUDIT POLICY (Unified Auditing)

This section describes the DROP AUDIT POLICY statement for unified auditing. This type of auditing is new beginning with Oracle Database 12c and provides a full set of enhanced auditing features. Refer to Oracle Database Security Guide for more information on unified auditing.

Purpose

Use the DROP AUDIT POLICY statement to remove a unified audit policy from the database.

Prerequisites

You must have the AUDIT SYSTEM system privilege or the AUDIT_ADMIN role.

To drop a common unified audit policy, the current container must be the root and you must have the commonly granted AUDIT SYSTEM privilege or the AUDIT_ADMIN common role. To drop a local unified audit policy, the current container must be the container in which the audit policy was created and you must have the commonly granted AUDIT SYSTEM privilege or the AUDIT_ADMIN common role, or you must have the locally granted AUDIT SYSTEM privilege or the AUDIT_ADMIN local role in the container.

Semantics

policy

Specify the name of the unified audit policy you want to drop. The policy must have been created using the CREATE AUDIT POLICY statement.

You can find the names of all unified audit policies by querying the AUDIT_UNIFIED_POLICIES view and the names of all enabled unified audit policies by querying the AUDIT_UNIFIED_ENABLED_POLICIES view

Restriction on Dropping Unified Audit Policies You cannot drop an enabled unified audit policy. You must first disable the policy using the NOAUDIT statement.
