Oracle Tips

Auditing Oracle DDL with the data dictionary

When monitoring activity within an Oracle database, the Oracle administrator needs to know those times when a table or index was created.  Oracle has a new column called CREATED with the DBA_OBJECTS view that can be used to display the data that an object was created.

This is a critical report in a production environment when an audit of DDL must be kept.

Here is a script to produce a great management report showing all tables and indexes that were created within the past 14 days:

alter session set nls_date_format='YY-MON-DD HH24';

set pages 999

 

column c1 heading 'Date/time|created'

column c2 heading 'Object|Type'        format a20

column c3 heading 'Object|Name'        format a40

 

select

   created        c1,

   object_type    c2,

   object_name    c3

from

  dba_objects

where

   created > sysdate-14

order by

   created desc;

This elegant report gives complete statistics for all recent create DDL statements.  Here is a sample of the report.

Date/time    Object               Object

created      Type                 Name
