Can't see audit logs

We enabled the audit_trail=true from init.ora, restarted the database, then opened audit for select, but we couldn't see any audit logs. What can we do?

If you have AUDIT_TRAIL=TRUE, that is just the first part. You'll need to tell Oracle what to audit. This is done with the AUDIT command.

When Oracle does log items in the audit trail, you will find them in the DBA_AUDIT_TRAIL view. If you want the

audit trail written to an external file, then set AUDIT_TRAIL=OS instead.
