SQL Sentry Audit Conditions


Audit Conditions are applicable to various activities inside and outside of the SQL Sentry client. Audit Conditions provide a way to be notified when various settings are changed, or monitored objects are modified from within the SQL Sentry client. Audit Conditions have an assigned default severity and associated tags, and will affect your environment's Environmental Health Score (EHO).

Note:  The Log to Database action is configured by default for all Audit Conditions. This gives you an audit trail concerning changes to your SQL Sentry environment. If you'd like to be notified about Audit Conditions happening in your environment, configure the Send Email Action.
