Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) policies : Metadata policies
 
Metadata policies
The target database monitoring and auditing features use metadata policies monitor or track changes in metadata in selected databases.
You cannot create metadata policies, but you can modify some of the settings of the pre-defined metadata policies.
To view predefined metadata policies, on the DAM Security Alert Policies or DAM Activity Auditing Policies page, from the View list, select Metadata Policies.
To configure a metadata policy
1. Do one of the following:
To configure a policy that is available to add to multiple target monitoring configurations, go to Policy > DAM Alert Policies or Policy > DAM Audit Policies.
To configure a policy for a specific target, go to DB Activity Monitoring > Monitoring Management, and then click a target name. Then, click the Alert Policies or Audit Policies tab.
2. To identify metadata policies, do one of the following:
If you are using the DAM Security Alert Policies or DAM Activity Auditing Policies page, from the View list, select Metadata Policies.

To view metadata policies for a specific database type, modify the filter of the Metadata Policies group or create a new policy group. For details about modifying a policy group, see “Alert and audit policy groups”.
