General availability: Auditing for Azure SQL Database
Published date: November 12, 2014
Auditing for Azure SQL Database tracks and logs all events that occur on your database, such as updates and queries against data. This feature was previously available only through the Azure Preview portal, but auditing can now be managed from the Azure Management Portal or via Windows PowerShell commands. Dashboard views and reports in the Azure Management Portal provide at-a-glance insight into database events. Auditing events are written to an audit log that is stored in the Azure Storage account you designate (Azure Storage rates apply).
