Hello Everyone,

I have a project where I need to audit changes to my SQL Agent jobs.  I will need to be able to query on when, what and who made the changes.  Is there a way to write the SQL Agent logs to a SQL table so that I can query on it?  Or is there a better way to audit the SQL Agent Jobs so that I can query on it?

Thank You!

Here is a really nice blog on the topic: http://www.bimonkey.com/2009/12/sql-server-2008-auditing/
MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc280386.aspx

The blog post takes you step-by-step through creating the audit table and subsequently the audit on update of UPDATE ON OBJECT::[dbo].[sysjobs] BY [public].

Sounds good and good luck! When you get back to this, the main one is the first. The second will be for full understanding of how Audit works in SQL 2008 per MSDN.
