Security note Security Note

Possible elevation of credentials: Users in the PolicyAdministratorRole role can create server triggers and schedule policy executions that can affect the operation of the instance of the Database Engine. For example, users in the PolicyAdministratorRole role can create a policy that can prevent most objects from being created in the Database Engine. Because of this possible elevation of credentials, the PolicyAdministratorRole role should be granted only to users who are trusted with controlling the configuration of the Database Engine.

The following example enables the logging of successful policy evaluations.

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_syspolicy_set_log_on_success @value = 1;
