auditpol list

Applies to: Windows Server (Semi-Annual Channel), Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012

Lists audit policy categories and subcategories, or lists users for whom a per-user audit policy is defined.

To perform list operations on the per-user policy, you must have Read permission for that object set in the security descriptor. You can also perform list operations if you have the Manage auditing and security log (SeSecurityPrivilege) user right. However, this right allows additional access that is not necessary to perform the overall list operations.

Syntax

auditpol /list
[/user|/category|subcategory[:<categoryname>|<{guid}>|*]]
[/v] [/r]

Parameters

Parameter Description
/user Retrieves all users for whom the per-user audit policy has been defined. If used with the /v parameter, the security identifier (SID) of the user is also displayed.
/category Displays the names of categories understood by the system. If used with the /v parameter, the category globally unique identifier (GUID) is also displayed.
/subcategory Displays the names of subcategories and their associated GUID.
/v Displays the GUID with the category or subcategory, or when used with /user, displays the SID of each user.
