AUDIT_FILE_DEST

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax AUDIT_FILE_DEST = 'directory'
Default value The first default value is:

ORACLE_BASE/admin/ORACLE_SID/adump

The second default value, which is used if the first default value does not exist or is unusable, is:

ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/audit

Both of these default values are for UNIX systems. Other platforms may have different defaults.

Modifiable ALTER SYSTEM ... DEFERRED
Basic No

Note:

In an Oracle database that has migrated to unified auditing, the setting of this parameter has no effect.

AUDIT_FILE_DEST specifies the operating system directory into which the audit trail is written when the AUDIT_TRAIL initialization parameter is set to os, xml, or xml,extended. The audit records will be written in XML format if the AUDIT_TRAIL initialization parameter is set to xml or xml, extended. It is also the location to which mandatory auditing information is written and, if so specified by the AUDIT_SYS_OPERATIONS initialization parameter, audit records for user SYS.

In a multitenant container database (CDB), the scope of the settings for this initialization parameter is the CDB. Although the audit trail is provided per pluggable database (PDB) in a CDB, this initialization parameter cannot be configured for individual PDBs.
