Configure a Global Audit Trail

The global audit trail provides a log of all audit records for all objects that are configured for auditing. The log is a record of additions, deletions, and changes for audited objects. The records for an instance of an audited object remain in the global audit trail, even after you delete the instance. In addition, the system keeps a record of the individual who deleted the instance.
