Enable auditing for a table

You can enable table auditing to track changes to all or some of the table's fields.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

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. 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.
  3. Select the dictionary entry for the table.
    The system displays the dictionary entry form.
  4. Check the Audit check box.
  5. Click Update.

What to do next

If you want to audit only a few fields in the table Enable whitelist auditing for a table. If you want to audit most – but exclude some – fields, Exclude a field from being audited (blacklisting).
