Starts the auditing of SQL requests that attempt to access data.
The system creates a log entry when it checks privileges on the SQL request. For a detailed description of access logging options and use cases, see Teradata Vantage™ - Advanced SQL Engine Security Administration, B035-1100.
This statement is a Teradata extension to the ANSI SQL:2011 standard.
Other SQL dialects support similar non-ANSI standard statements with names such as START LOGGING.
You must have the EXECUTE privilege on the DBC.AccLogRule macro to use the BEGIN LOGGING statement to initiate access logging on database objects and operations.
Privileges Granted Automatically
When you initially set up logging, before you can use the BEGIN LOGGING statement, you must run the DIPACC script to create the DBC.ACCLogRule macro, which allows you to create logging rules in the DBC.AccLogRuleTbl using BEGIN LOGGING statements.
