Audit Tables H

Audit Tables V

To access this page in System Administration:

  1. Click Data Sources in the Navigation pane.
  2. Click the Audit icon for a data source.
  3. Click the Tables icon.




Displays the name of the audited data source table.


If checked, an audit trail is enabled for the table.


If checked, a record of every stored procedure that runs against a record as part of a Stewardship Tier Page Event is maintained in the audit tables.


Click to create audit tables in the specified Data Source to track changes to the selected user table.

NOTE: Once the tables are built, the Snapshot Data button is active.


Click to create a copy of the tables with a snapshot of the data currently in the table. This process must be run after creating the audit tables. When a record is edited, the audit trail records both the before and the after values. However, the trail only shows values that are edited. Snapshot Data can be viewed as an insert for existing records. If the audit is enabled after the table has values in it, the trail has no way of telling where the data came from, so the snapshot is a way of verifying that some data existed prior to auditing.


Click to report any differences between the columns in the table and the audit table. When the audit tables are built, all the columns from the table that are being audited are included. However, it is possible to have a case where the columns in the table and the audit tables do not match. There can be two reasons for the misalignment:

  • The Designer deliberately removed some columns from the audit table because those values should not be audited.
  • The Designer added columns to the table after the audit tables were built and forgot to manually update the audit tables.
