Audit service catalog variables

The audit history records all changes to named service catalog variables.

About this task

Auditing is enabled by default for service catalog variables.

These changes are displayed in:
  • The requested item history for all variables associated with the item.
  • The catalog task history for all variables that would normally be used by the task.
This auditing allows service catalog administrators to view a full history of changes to variables that may have affected the parent record, including their creation.
Note: Unnamed variables are not audited
