In Oracle Utilities Application Framework V18.104.22.168.0 and above provides the ability to integrate to Oracle Audit Vault.Why would you use this?
Oracle Audit Vault can be used in conjunction with Oracle Utilities Application Framework base products for two scenarios:
- If you have more than one Oracle Utilities Application Framework based product or even more than one Oracle application then you can implement consolidated enterprise wide auditing instead of holding audit information within each individual database. You would be able to track transactions across products and across technologies.
- Typically Audit information is kept within each product and is not really optimized for external auditing reporting and compliance checking. Some customers see auditing as an overhead on their operational databases. Implementing Audit Vault extracts that Audit information from your operational database in near real time fashion to have dedicated access to audit information and an optimized Audit application on a seperate environment. This is ideal for customers who have external auditors.
Audit Vault can be implemented to replace the Oracle Utilities Application Framework inbuilt auditing or work in conjunction with the inbuilt auditing information. For more details refer to a new whitepaper Audit Vault Integration with Oracle Utilities Application Framework (Doc Id: 1606764.1) available from My Oracle Support.
