Sets the auditing policy for a database.

   [-ServerName] <String>
   [-DatabaseName] <String>
   [-AuditAction <String[]>]

   [-AuditType <AuditType>]
   [-EventType <String[]>]
   [-PassThru]
   [-RetentionInDays <UInt32>]

   [-Confirm]
   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-AzureRmSqlDatabaseAuditingPolicy cmdlet changes the auditing policy of an Azure SQL database. To use the cmdlet, use the ResourceGroupName, ServerName, and DatabaseName parameters to identify the database. Specify the StorageAccountName parameter to specify the storage account for the audit logs and the StorageKeyType parameter to define the storage keys.

You can also define retention for the audit logs table by setting the value of the RetentionInDays and TableIdentifier parameters to define the period and the seed for the audit log table names. Specify the EventType parameter to define which event types to audit.

After the cmdlet runs successfully, auditing of the database is enabled. If the database used the policy of its server for auditing before you ran this cmdlet, auditing stops using that policy. If the cmdlet succeeds and you use the PassThru parameter, it returns an object describing the current auditing policy in addition to the database identifiers. Database identifiers include, but are not limited to, ResourceGroupName, ServerName, and DatabaseName.

This cmdlet is also supported by the SQL Server Stretch Database service on Azure.

Examples

Example 1: Set the auditing policy of a database to use Table auditing

PS C:\>Set-AzureRmSqlDatabaseAuditingPolicy -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" -ServerName "Server01" -DatabaseName "Database01" -AuditType Table -StorageAccountName "Storage31"

This command sets the auditing policy of database named Database01 located on Server01 to use the storage account named Storage31.

Example 2: Set the storage account key of an existing auditing policy of a database

PS C:\>Set-AzureRmSqlDatabaseAuditingPolicy -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" -ServerName "Server01" -DatabaseName "Database01" -StorageAccountKey Secondary

This command sets the auditing policy of database named Database01 located on Server01 to keep using the same storage account name but to now use the secondary key.

Example 3: Set the auditing policy of a database to use a specific event type

PS C:\>Set-AzureRmSqlDatabaseAuditingPolicy -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" -ServerName "Server01" -DatabaseName "Database01" -EventType Login_Failure

Example 4: Set the auditing policy of a database to use Blob auditing

PS C:\>Set-AzureRmSqlDatabaseAuditingPolicy -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" -ServerName "Server01" -DatabaseName "Database01" -AuditType Blob -StorageAccountName "Storage31" -AuditActionGroup "SUCCESSFUL_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP", "FAILED_DATABASE_AUTHENTICATION_GROUP" -AuditAction "UPDATE ON database::[Database01] BY [public]"  -RetentionInDays 8

This command sets the auditing policy of database named Database01 located on Server01. The policy logs the Login_Failure event type. The command does not change the storage settings.

-EventType

Specifies the event types to audit. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • PlainSQL_Success
  • PlainSQL_Failure
  • ParameterizedSQL_Success
  • ParameterizedSQL_Failure
  • StoredProcedure_Success
  • StoredProcedure_Failure
  • Login_Success
  • Login_Failure
  • TransactionManagement_Success
  • TransactionManagement_Failure
  • All
  • None

You can specify several event types. You can specify All to audit all of the event types or None to specify that no events will be audited. If you specify All or None at the same time, the cmdlet does not run.

Type:String[]

-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RetentionInDays

Specifies the number of retention days for the audit logs table. A value of zero (0) means that the table is not retained. The default value is zero. If you specify a value greater than zero, you must specify a value for the TableIdentifer parameter.

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-StorageAccountName

Specifies the name of the storage account for auditing the database. Wildcard characters are not permitted. This parameter is not required. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the storage account that was defined previously as part of the auditing policy of the database. If this is the first time a database auditing policy is defined and you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet fails.

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-StorageKeyType

Specifies which of the storage access keys to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:
