Last day someone drop a import table in a database. The app get crazy and nothing work fine. The solution was recreate the table but the problem was who deleted it?.
In this case there weren’t any audit. You can activate audit (it is powerfull) but in this case I want talk about trace only DDL SQL (Data Definition Language) by using the enable_ddl_logging parameter.
How to check;
BBDD*ANR> show parameter enable_ddl_logging NAME TYPE VALUE ____________________________________ ________________________________ _________________________ enable_ddl_logging boolean FALSE
How to enable;
ALTER SYSTEM SET ENABLE_DDL_LOGGING=TRUE;
Hot to disable;
ALTER SYSTEM SET ENABLE_DDL_LOGGING=FALSE;
The audit will be write to (version 12c) a file with format show below into the diagnostic_dest;
