Re: Track Data Changes

The requirement is to watch a database table in MySQL database for any data changes (CRUD operations) and report it

Question: Why?

If the idea is to "audit" legitimate changes made to sensitive data (who changed it and when and what did it look like before and after) then I'd suggest triggers that populate a separate "audit" table.

If the idea is to find someone who's doing something that they shouldn't be doing, then you've got a far bigger problem, namely that your permissions model has run away from you and you need to spend some time and effort locking things back down again properly
