using Oracle 10g to setup the FGA audit option

Dear all,

I read this:

http://wingsinwk.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/oracle-database-audit-trail/

To check how to turn on the FGA audit feature of Oracle.

and I just know this:

1) Check if FGA option has been turn on:

select * from v$option
 where parameter like 'Fine-grained%';
 

Open in new window


and the result is :

PARAMETER                                                       
----------------------------------------------------------------
VALUE                                                           
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fine-grained access control                                     
TRUE                                                            
                                                                                
Fine-grained Auditing                                           
TRUE                                                            
                                                                                

2 rows selected.

Open in new window


this means it has been turned on?

but when I do this :

select * from SYS.FGA_LOG$;

Open in new window


the result return nothing, so this mean the FGA policy based audit has no policy turned on and that's why record in FGA_LOG$ table?

even
select * from DBA_FGA_AUDIT_TRAIL;

Open in new window


also said no row returned.

What is your question????

You're right, the only thing you still have to do is defining a FGA policy.

Use package function DBMS_FGA_Add_Policy(..)

Chapter Creating An FGA Policy on below link shows you how to do it...

"What is your question????"

this means it has been turned on? I am not sure if the FGA in our Oracle 10g has been enabled .

but both query below return nothing:

1) select * from SYS.FGA_LOG$;
2) select * from DBA_FGA_AUDIT_TRAIL;
