Exempted table information

Some updates are not audited despite enabling auditing on a table. This is why you may see 132 updates in a record's history, but only seven audited ones.

Auditing excludes the following information:

  • Any updates made by an upgrade.
  • Any updates made through import sets.
  • Any records in parent or child tables.
  • Any field with the no_audit dictionary attribute.
  • Any system tables not listed in the glide.ui.audit_deleted_tables property list.
  • Any field that begins with the sys_ prefix (system fields) except the sys_class_name and sys_domain_id columns.
  • Any time an inactivity monitor touches a record (this prevents you seeing possibly hundreds of updates listed against an incident, with the noise drowning out the useful data).
