MS SQL Server Auditing Tool

Databases are critical to enterprises because they store confidential data. Hence it becomes important to monitor database logs. But manually auditing them is a herculean task because of the enormous amount of log data generated. ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer is a comprehensive log management tool that makes it easy for you to monitor all database activities, audit user accesses, track database server account changes, and ensure integrity of confidential data stored, especially in your MS SQL server database.

24288: Issued a create user-defined server role command

Server roles are similar to 'groups' in Windows Active Directory. They are used to manage user permissions at the SQL server level. Server level principals can be added to appropriate server roles based on the permissions to be granted to them. Event 24288 occurs when a command to create a user-defined server role has been issued in an SQL server. It is generated by the SERVER_PRINCIPAL_CHANGE_GROUP action group. Administrators can derive important information from this event including the:

  • Date and time at which the event occurred.
  • Session identifier of the event.
  • Privileged user who performed the action.
  • Server associated with the event.
  • ID, name, and type of the target object (in this case, the server role).
