Last updated on MARCH 28, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 8.0.4.0 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 8.0.4 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

How does the noaudit option work?

You have correctly enabled auditing and have issued the statement

AUDIT INSERT TABLE, UPDATE TABLE, DELETE TABLE;

to audit all updates, inserts, and deletes to any tables. However, you do not
wish to audit actions taken by the owner of the tables, and so have also issued
the command

NOAUDIT INSERT TABLE, UPDATE TABLE, DELETE TABLE BY <USER>;

You realize later that <USER>'s actions are still being audited and recorded.
Why?
