Note:

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

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.
