Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: and later   [Release: 11.2 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While enabling auditing for a proxy user the following error occurs:

AUDIT <audit option> BY <proxy user> ON BEHALF OF ANY BY ACCESS;
ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended

Running the AUDIT statement with 'ON BEHALF OF' clause does not work with 'BY ACCESS'
or 'BY SESSION' clauses. When AUDIT is issued without 'BY ACCESS' or 'BY SESSION' clause, the actions are audited by session.
