ExtendedServerBlobAuditingPolicy.AuditActionsAndGroups Property

Definition

Gets or sets specifies the Actions-Groups and Actions to audit.

The recommended set of action groups to use is the following combination - this will audit all the queries and stored procedures executed against the database, as well as successful and failed logins:

BATCH_COMPLETED_GROUP, SUCCESSFUL_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP, FAILED_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP.

This above combination is also the set that is configured by default when enabling auditing from the Azure portal.

The supported action groups to audit are (note: choose only specific groups that cover your auditing needs. Using unnecessary groups could lead to very large quantities of audit records):

APPLICATION_ROLE_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP BACKUP_RESTORE_GROUP DATABASE_LOGOUT_GROUP DATABASE_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OBJECT_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OBJECT_PERMISSION_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OPERATION_GROUP DATABASE_PERMISSION_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_PRINCIPAL_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_PRINCIPAL_IMPERSONATION_GROUP DATABASE_ROLE_MEMBER_CHANGE_GROUP FAILED_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_ACCESS_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_PERMISSION_CHANGE_GROUP SUCCESSFUL_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP USER_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP BATCH_STARTED_GROUP BATCH_COMPLETED_GROUP

These are groups that cover all sql statements and stored procedures executed against the database, and should not be used in combination with other groups as this will result in duplicate audit logs.

For more information, see Database-Level Audit Action Groups.

For Database auditing policy, specific Actions can also be specified (note that Actions cannot be specified for Server auditing policy). The supported actions to audit are: SELECT UPDATE INSERT DELETE EXECUTE RECEIVE REFERENCES

The general form for defining an action to be audited is: {action} ON {object} BY {principal}

Note that <object> in the above format can refer to an object like a table, view, or stored procedure, or an entire database or schema. For the latter cases, the forms DATABASE::{db_name} and SCHEMA::{schema_name} are used, respectively.

For example: SELECT on dbo.myTable by public SELECT on DATABASE::myDatabase by public SELECT on SCHEMA::mySchema by public
