    Hello ,

    Did anyone ever had trouble with specific application users, which show strange characters in Audit Data?
    All queries from a specific user which is configured in application are strange and unreadable.
    I have an ongoing case with support, but i would appreciate if anyone had this issue and  share how they resolved it. 


    Best,

    I have seen what appear to be Japanese or Chinese characters  ( 猀 ) when a username contains combinations of special characters, or junk data.  
    Login from same source and destination

    From this example it seems that the user did not have the database field populated, so I question what was actually in the user field.
    There was not a sql exception for the second line.

    Is this similar to what you are seeing?
