Audit and monitor data sharing

This article describes how data providers and recipients can use audit logs to monitor Delta Sharing events. Provider audit logs record actions taken by the provider and actions taken by recipients on the provider’s shared data. Recipient audit logs record events related to the accessing of shares and the management of provider objects.

To view the list Delta Sharing audit log events, see Delta Sharing events.

To access audit logs, you need to enable audit log delivery. See Configure audit log delivery.

View details of a recipient’s query result

In the provider logs, the events returned as deltaSharingQueriedTableChanges and deltaSharingQueriedTable are logged after a data recipient’s query gets a response. Providers can view the response.result field of these logs to see more details about what was shared with the recipient. The field can include the following values. This list is not exhaustive.
