Why is the following query unsupported for change notification?


I'm trying to write some .NET code to listen for changes in an Oracle DB from a subset of users, by registering an OracleDependency on the Oracle UNIFIED_AUDIT_TABLE. I've defined an audit policy TEST_AUDIT_POLICY to audit changes from the users I'm interested in. The following code is my .NET listener:

    private const string TableName = "UNIFIED_AUDIT_TRAIL";
    private const string SelectStatement = "select event_timestamp from " + TableName;


    public Form1()
        var connection = new OracleConnection(Constr);
        var command = connection.CreateCommand();
            var dependency = new OracleDependency(command);
            dependency.OnChange += NotifyTypesChanged;

            command.Notification.IsNotifiedOnce = false;
            command.BindByName = true;
            command.CommandText = SelectStatement;

            new OracleDataAdapter(command)
                {MissingSchemaAction = MissingSchemaAction.AddWithKey}.Fill(DataSet, TableName);
            _dataGrid1.SetDataBinding(DataSet, TableName);
        catch (Exception ex)

When I run this code, I get the following exception:

Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.Client.OracleException (0x80004005): ORA-29973: Unsupported query or operation  during change notification registration

   at System.Data.Common.DbDataAdapter.Fill(DataSet dataSet, String srcTable)

Am I unable to listen for changes on UNIFIED_AUDIT_TABLE because UNIFIED_AUDIT_TABLE is not a table, but just a view? If so, how can I register to be notified of changes against the TEST_AUDIT_POLICY policy?
