SQL Server Auditing: A Learning Series Part Nine

Continuing our learning series on auditing, today we prepare for a database audit.  Just like with the server audit specification, you must setup a new server audit that correlates to this database audit specification (remember, it is a one-to-one relationship).

  1. Create a new server audit for your database audit as demonstrated in part three of this series.
  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, select the database for which you plan to audit.
  3. Then select the Security node followed by right-clicking on Database Audit Specification and select New Database Audit Specification.
  4. From here, the directions are the same as was demonstrated in part five of this series except here we can select the Object Class of either DATABASE, OBJECT, or SCHEMA.  For example if we audit the UPDATE action then we can choose the object upon to audit.

Enjoy and stay tuned.
