AUDIT_SYS_OPERATIONS

Property Description
Parameter type Boolean
Default value false
Modifiable No
Range of values true | false
Basic No

Note:

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

AUDIT_SYS_OPERATIONS enables or disables the auditing of top-level operations, which are SQL statements directly issued by users when connecting with the SYSASM, SYSBACKUP, SYSDBA, SYSDG, SYSKM, or SYSOPER privileges. (SQL statements run from within PL/SQL procedures or functions are not considered top-level.) The audit records are written to the operating system's audit trail. The audit records will be written in XML format if the AUDIT_TRAIL initialization parameter is set to xml or xml, extended.

On UNIX platforms, if the AUDIT_SYSLOG_LEVEL parameter has also been set, then it overrides the AUDIT_TRAIL parameter and SYS audit records are written to the system audit log using the SYSLOG utility.

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