NOAUDIT

Purpose

Use the NOAUDIT statement to stop auditing operations previously enabled by the AUDIT statement.

The NOAUDIT statement must have the same syntax as the previous AUDIT statement. Further, it reverses the effects only of that particular statement. For example, suppose one AUDIT statement A enables auditing for a specific user. A second statement B enables auditing for all users. A NOAUDIT statement C to disable auditing for all users reverses statement B. However, statement C leaves statement A in effect and continues to audit the user that statement A specified.

Prerequisites

To stop auditing of SQL statements, you must have the AUDIT SYSTEM system privilege.

To stop auditing of schema objects, you must be the owner of the object on which you stop auditing or you must have the AUDIT ANY system privilege. In addition, if the object you chose for auditing is a directory, then even if you created it, you must have the AUDIT ANY system privilege.

Semantics

audit_operation_clause

Use the audit_operation_clause to stop auditing of a particular SQL statement.

statement_option For sql_statement_shortcut, specify the shortcut for the SQL statements for which auditing is to be stopped. Refer to Table 13-1 and Table 13-2 for a list of the SQL statement shortcuts and the SQL statements they audit.

ALL Specify ALL to stop auditing of all statement options currently being audited because of an earlier AUDIT ALL ... statement. You cannot use this clause to reverse an earlier AUDIT ALL STATEMENTS ... statement.

ALL STATEMENTS Specify ALL STATEMENTS to reverse an earlier AUDIT ALL STATEMENTS ... statement. You cannot use this clause to reverse an earlier AUDIT ALL ... statement.

system_privilege For system_privilege, specify the system privilege for which auditing is to be stopped. Refer to Table 18-1 for a list of the system privileges and the statements they authorize.

ALL PRIVILEGES Specify ALL PRIVILEGES to stop auditing of all system privileges currently being audited.

auditing_by_clause Use the auditing_by_clause to stop auditing only those SQL statements issued by particular users. If you omit this clause, then Oracle Database stops auditing all users' statements.

Restriction on auditing_by_clause The IN SESSION CURRENT clause is not supported in a NOAUDIT statement.

audit_schema_object_clause

Use the audit_schema_object_clause to stop auditing of a particular database object.

sql_operation For sql_operation, specify the type of operation for which auditing is to be stopped on the object specified in the ON clause. Refer to Table 13-3 for a list of these options.

ALL Specify ALL as a shortcut equivalent to specifying all SQL operations applicable for the type of object.

auditing_on_clause  The auditing_on_clause lets you specify the particular schema object for which auditing is to be stopped.

NETWORK Use this clause to discontinue auditing of database link usage and logins.

WHENEVER [NOT] SUCCESSFUL Specify WHENEVER SUCCESSFUL to stop auditing only for SQL statements and operations on schema objects that complete successfully.

Specify WHENEVER NOT SUCCESSFUL to stop auditing only for statements and operations that result in Oracle Database errors.

If you omit this clause, then the database stops auditing for all statements or operations, regardless of success or failure.

Examples

Stop Auditing of SQL Statements Related to Roles: Example If you have chosen auditing for every SQL statement that creates or drops a role, then you can stop auditing of such statements by issuing the following statement:

NOAUDIT ROLE; 

Stop Auditing of Updates or Queries on Objects Owned by a Particular User: Example If you have chosen auditing for any statement that queries or updates any table issued by the users hr and oe, then you can stop auditing for queries by hr by issuing the following statement:

NOAUDIT SELECT TABLE BY hr; 

The preceding statement stops auditing only queries by hr, so the database continues to audit queries and updates by oe as well as updates by hr.

Stop Auditing of Statements Authorized by a Particular Object Privilege: Example To stop auditing on all statements that are authorized by DELETE ANY TABLE system privilege, issue the following statement:

NOAUDIT DELETE ANY TABLE;

Stop Auditing of Queries on a Particular Object: Example If you have chosen auditing for every SQL statement that queries the employees table in the schema hr, then you can stop auditing for such queries by issuing the following statement:

NOAUDIT SELECT 
   ON hr.employees; 

Stop Auditing of Queries that Complete Successfully: Example You can stop auditing for queries that complete successfully by issuing the following statement:

NOAUDIT SELECT 
   ON hr.employees
   WHENEVER SUCCESSFUL; 

This statement stops auditing only for successful queries. Oracle Database continues to audit queries resulting in Oracle Database errors.
