Exclude a field from being audited (blacklisting)

Prevent the system from tracking a subset of fields in an audited table by excluding those fields from the audit.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

To exclude a field in a table from being audited, you must have first enabled auditing for that table.

About this task

Blacklist a set of fields when you want to audit most of an audited table's fields. If you need to audit only a few fields, follow the whitelisting procedure instead.
Note: Disabling auditing on journal-based fields can impact the functionality of features, such as the Activity Formatter. For more information, see KB0743142.


  1. Navigate to System Definition > Dictionary.
  2. If necessary, customize the list view to show the Attributes column.
  3. Navigate to the row corresponding to the table and field (column) you want to exclude from auditing.
  4. In the Attributes column for that row, enter no_audit.
