Unified Audit Records Older Than 30 Days Are Not Purged Using DBMS_MGMT Purge Job (Doc ID 2305499.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.1 to 12.2.0.1 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If the last_archive_time is set to anything greater than 30 days then the Purge Job doesn't delete all the data from Unified Audit Trail

However if it's changed from last_archive_time => SYSTIMESTAMP-31 to SYSTIMESTAMP-30 the Purge Job works as expected i.e. it deletes the audit data older than 30 days.
