When running an autotrack report and global variable changes are seen, why does the job_name attribute for that audit record get set to the global variable name?
Global variables and job names are treated as job names internally in the audit report. Currently autotrack auditing is not specific to type of event. i.e. SET_GLOBAL or STARTJOB etc. So as part of audit report, Application server populated audit attribute in the database as job_name even for SET_GLOBAL. Hence autotrack reports job_name even for global variables.
