ABL Syntax Reference : AUDIT-ENABLED function
 

AUDIT-ENABLED function

Determines whether a connected database is audit-enabled.
For information about audit-enabling a database, or creating and activating an audit policy for a database, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Core Business Services - Security and Auditing.

Syntax

AUDIT-ENABLED( [ integer-expression | logical-name | alias ] )
integer-expression
The sequence number of a connected database to query. For example, AUDIT-ENABLED(1) queries the first database, AUDIT-ENABLED(2) queries the second database, and so on. If you specify a sequence number that does not correspond to a connected database, the AVM returns the Unknown value (?).
logical-name or alias
The logical name or alias of a connected database to query. These forms require a quoted character string or a character expression. If you specify a logical name or alias that does not correspond to a connected database, the AVM returns the Unknown value (?).

Notes

*If you specify a connected database, the AVM queries that database and returns TRUE if it is audit-enabled. If you do not specify a database, the AVM queries all connected databases and returns TRUE if any one of the connected databases is audit-enabled.
*You can reference the AUDIT-ENABLED function within a preprocessor &IF expression (such as, &IF AUDIT-ENABLED … &ENDIF). For more information, see the &IF, &THEN, &ELSEIF, &ELSE, and &ENDIF preprocessor directives reference entry.
