Enable whitelist auditing for a table

Enable a table to audit only those fields you explicitly designate. This is useful when you want to audit only a small number of an audited table's fields.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

The table must be enabled for auditing.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Definition > Dictionary.
    The system displays the list of dictionary entries. The list includes a row for each table as well as a row for each column (field) in the table.
  2. If necessary, customize the list view to show the Attributes column.
  3. In the list of dictionary entries, find the row corresponding to the table you want to audit, for example cmdb_ci_computer. You can distinguish the row for the table itself – versus a row for a column in the table – by finding the row with the correct table name, an empty entry for Column name, and a type of collection.
  4. In the Attributes field for that row, enter audit_type=whitelist.

What to do next

Designate which fields you want to audit in this table.
