DB2 LUW Audit does not capture failed access attempts on restricted tables

Many customers have restricted tables where very few select users will have read/write access. These tables need to be monitored through various means to report all access attempts on the tables. DB2 audit is able to capture only the successful access attempts on these tables through audit policy. Unsuccessful access attempts where users get an error message saying they do not have select/insert/update/delete access on the table are not logged in db2 audit. Capturing this unsuccessful access attempts on the db will help identify and report data breaches.
