XYZDBA is the owner of all the tables in a schema called XYZ.

I have created public synonyms for all these tables.

I have created USER1 who has alter/insert/update/select/reference priviliges on the public synonyms created above.

I have a schema level trigger like

CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER XYZDBA_logintrig
AFTER LOGON ON XYZDBA.SCHEMA
DECLARE
      /* variable declarations-------start*/
      ssn number(8)  ;
      hst varchar(30) ;
      logtime varchar(10);
BEGIN
      select sys_context('USERENV','SESSIONID') into ssn from dual;
      select sys_context('USERENV','HOST') into hst from dual;
      select to_char(SYSDATE,'HH24:MM:SS') into logtime from dual;
      insert into  XYZDBA.Audloginlogs(user_id,session_id,host,logon_day,logon_time)
            values (user,ssn,hst,to_date(sysdate),logtime) ;
END ;

XYZDBA has administer database trigger system privilige.

Whenever USER1 logins in I want the trigger to create a row in audloginlogs table ?

Whenever I login as XYZDBA a row is getting created . But, when I login as USER1 the row is not getting created .

What am I  doing wrong ?

This is actually the normal behavior of your trigger.
in oracle, schema is owned by individual user.
Users can log on the oracle database as a whole to use other's schema objects, but they cannot log on other's shema.

for example:

The TEST oracle database has two users A and B, and their corresponding SCHEMAs.
User A and User B can both log on the TEST database, if privileges assigned properly, they can cross-reference each other's schema object, but user A cannot log on the user B's schema, and vice versa.
But User A, by default, log on his own schema by logging on the TEST database, so is USER B.

so if your above trigger is changed like this in the header:
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER XYZDBA_logintrig
AFTER LOGON ON DATABASE
---
---

You will have a record of each user logon.

but this is not what you want, I think.

in conclusion, for events like which users are logging onto the schema level , I guess you cannot do that.

The trigger is created to fire,only when XYZDBA logson.

CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER XYZDBA_logintrig
AFTER LOGON ON XYZDBA.SCHEMA  --- Only for XYZDBA

From Oracle docs:
-----------------
Creating a trigger on DATABASE implies that the triggering event is outside the scope of a user (for example, database STARTUP and SHUTDOWN), and it applies to all users (for example, a trigger created on LOGON event by the DBA).

Creating a trigger on SCHEMA implies that the trigger is created in the current user's schema and is fired only for that user.

------------------

If you need to fire it for USER1,then use a DB level trigger..
