Registering the Security Audit Log File
To access the security audit log file contents with SQL query statements, you must first register the audit log file as a virtual table using the REGISTER TABLE statement with the DBMS=SXA clause.
The following statements, for example, make a subset of the security audit log file sal1.log available through the table sal1:
    database      CHAR(24) NOT NULL,
    audittime     DATE  NOT NULL,
    user_name     CHAR(24) NOT NULL,
    auditstatus   CHAR(1)  NOT NULL,
    auditevent    CHAR(24) NOT NULL,
    objecttype    CHAR(24) NOT NULL,
    objectname    CHAR(24) NOT NULL,
    description   CHAR(80) NOT NULL
  AS IMPORT FROM 'sal1.log'
The REGISTER TABLE statement, when used to register the security audit log file, requires the auditor privilege.
When the virtual table is no longer needed, a user with the auditor privilege can use the REMOVE TABLE statement, specifying the name of the virtual table created using REGISTER TABLE.
To display information on registered objects, use the HELP REGISTER statement.
For the complete syntax (including specifications for the security log audit file format) for the REGISTER TABLE and REMOVE TABLE statements, see the SQL Reference Guide.
