MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Audit Log Components

6.5.5.1 Audit Log Components

MySQL Enterprise Audit is based on the audit_log plugin and related components:

  • A server-side plugin named audit_log examines auditable events and determines whether to write them to the audit log.

  • User-defined functions enable manipulation of filtering definitions that control logging behavior.

  • Tables in the mysql system database provide persistent storage of filter and user account data.

  • The audit_log_filter_id system variable provides information about whether the current session has an audit filter assigned.

Prior to MySQL 5.7.13, MySQL Enterprise Audit consists only of the audit_log plugin and operates in legacy mode. See Section 6.5.5.6.3, “Legacy Mode Audit Log Filtering”.
