Description of the different Server Alert Log categories:

Category Description
Ddl Audit This category is used to trap all DDL statements made in the database. DDL statements are mostly SQL commands that changes database objects. Could be useful to trace if database objects are created. Creates a database trigger upon activation.
Debug This category is there to make it easier for developers to do debugging or tracing that requires persistence (i.e. writing to a table).
Deployment Used during installation to trace what is happening during an installation.
Deployment detail Used during installation to trace details about what is happening during an installation.
Event errors Used to trace errors that occurs when an event and its related event action is executed.
Server Errors Traces all Oracle database errors that occurs in the database. Could be set if an Oracle error occurs randomly. Creates a database trigger upon activation.
Sql Injections Used to trace suspected SQL Injections errors. If an Assert_SYS error occurs while checking dynamic SQL statements, the error is logged in this category.
Failed Authentications Logs failed authentication attempts to IFS Cloud, with some restrictions. The following things are logged:

  • Failed OpenID login attempts using the IFS Database Identity Provider. For other identity providers, similar audit logs are implemented elsewhere (such as the event log of the Active Directory server).
  • Failed login attempts in compatibility mode.
  • Successful OpenID logins using all identity providers where the tokens are rejected by IFS Cloud - the most common reason for this to happen is that the identity contained in the token does not have an IFS Cloud user assigned to it (most likely it is a real and valid user in the Active Directory that does not have an active IFS Cloud user account).
In-Memory Logs what indexes that are removed when removing analytical indexes for tables loaded to In-Memory.
