Auditing in Fusion Applications

Release 7 of Fusion Applications provides the much needed functionality of auditing, leveraging the Fusion Middleware auditing capabilities. The functionality provided in this release covers the auditing of various applications business objects and the Fusion middleware components, including the below:

  • Fusion Applications Business Objects

  • Oracle SOA Suite –SOA Metadata Customizations
  • Pages and Business Objects Extensibility

  • BI Publisher – Report request, report execution, etc.

In Release 7, the audit framework provided covers both capturing and reporting the audit events. Business objects or events to be audited can be configured using Manage Audit Policies in Fusion Applications while the reporting on these captured audit events is facilitated using Audit History UI. Users with appropriate roles will be able to configure (Manage Audit Policies with Application Administrator Job Role) and view these reports (Audit History UI with Internal Auditor Job Role).

The following Oracle University sessions provide a detailed overview of the auditing functionality available in Fusion Applications.

    I do not think this actually happens. We could trace only "Event Type" = "AccessCredential" getting logged for OPSS. Following is what we heard from Oracle Support on unpublished Bug 19486405:


    OIM Dev clarified as below:

    OIM does not use OPSS auditing, it has its own auditing explained and configured according to:


    OIM audit data is not captured via "Manage Audit Policies" in FA task

    @Jaydeep: Can you please expand upon what you are encountering? It is unclear what "this" means in your inquiry.

    I want to know how we can fetch the old and New value of any transaction on which AUdit is enabled from DB to create a BI Report

    You can view the old and new values of the audited object from Audit Reports UI. If required, export the output to an excel.
