Guardium Oracle Unified Audit - Delete oua state files


We are using Guardium Oracle Unified Audit Solution to monitor Oracle encrypted database traffic.

One scenario we are seeing is when any database monitoring is not required we delete the configuration for that database under SQL configuration from STAP control section. At the same time on Linux Server where STAP is installed it has oua state file for the removed database. oua state file does not get auto deleted when monitoring is removed.

We would like to add feature to auto delete the oua state file for the database when monitoring is removed under SQL configuration from STAP control section. This will help to offboard the databases from all the areas and will not require OS Admin support to manually delete the oua state file.

Please reach me if need more specific details.
