Introduction

Postgres Advanced Server allows database and security administrators, auditors, and operators to track and analyze database activities using audit logs which are a key component to 

general data governance, security, risk management, trouble shooting and pre-production testing. This tutorial documents how to create and review an audit log.  Audit logs can be configured to include:

  • When a role establishes a connection to an Advanced Server database.
  • When a role disconnects from an Advanced Server database.
  • When database objects are created, modified or deleted from a database.
  • When queries are performed against the database.
  • When failed authentication attempts occur.
  • When failed attempts to perform unauthorized activities occur
  • Capturing middle tier data tied more closely to actual user identification and location
