SQL Server Auditing: A Learning Series Part Eight

Continuing our learning series on auditing, today we discuss a couple of caveats to close out the week before we create database audits next week.

  1. In order to CREATE, ALTER, or DROP on either the server audit or server audit specification, the security principle must be assigned to ALTER ANY SERVER AUDIT or CONTROL SERVER permission.
  2. You can rename an Audit but not a server audit specification so choose your name wisely.
  3. In order to modify the properties of either the server audit or server audit specification, you must disable them and then re-enable them after your changes are completed.
  4. In order to CREATE, ALTER, or DROP a database audit specification, the security principle must be assigned to ALTER ANY DATABASE AUDIT or the ALTER or CONTROL permission on the respective database as well as having the permission in order to connect to the database.

Enjoy and stay tuned as we continue the series next week!
