Alert Policies

Activity Auditing provides several alert policies that you can provision on your target databases.

An alert policy defines an event in a database to monitor. Alert policies are rule-based and independent of audit policies. If an alert’s rule definition is matched (for example, an administrator fails to log in to a target database), then Oracle Data Safe raises an alert and displays it on the Alerts page.

Activity Auditing provides several alert policies that you can activate within the Activity Auditing wizard. The following table describes the alert policies.

Predefined Alert Severity Level Description
Database Parameter Changes Critical Database parameter changes
Failed Logins by Admin User High Failed administrator user login attempts
Audit Policy Changes High Changes to audit configuration
User Creation/Deletion Medium Creation or deletion of users
User Entitlement Changes Medium User entitlement changes
