Audit privilege use

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Audit Policy


Determines whether to audit each instance of a user exercising a user right.

By default, this value is set to No auditing in the Default Domain Controller Group Policy object (GPO) and in the local policies of workstations and servers.

If you define this policy setting, you can specify whether to audit successes, audit failures, or not to audit the event type at all. Success audits generate an audit entry when a user right is successfully exercised. Failure audits generate an audit entry when the exercise of a user right fails. You can select No auditing by defining the policy setting and unchecking Success and Failure.

Note Image Note

By default, audits are not generated for use of the following user rights even if success or failure auditing is specified for audit privilege use:

  • Bypass traverse checking
  • Debug programs
  • Create a token object
  • Replace process level token
  • Generate Security Audits
  • Backup files and directories
  • Restore files and directories
