Introduction

Oracle Database Unified Auditing enables selective and effective auditing inside the Oracle database using policies and conditions. The new policy based syntax simplifies management of auditing within the database and provides the ability to accelerate auditing based on conditions. For example, audit policies can be configured to audit based on specific IP addresses, programs, time periods, or connection types such as proxy authentication. In addition, specific schemas can be easily exempted from auditing when the audit policy is enabled.
