Auditing of System Setting Modifications

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have an audit log for all additions or modifications made via the application administration section; including what setting was changed to what.

Example:

"User XX changed XX setting from XX to XX".
"User XX added Active Directory security group XX from the domain XX"

"User XX granted Active Directory security group XX modify rights to the template XX"
 

In a multi-administrator environment being able to know these changes and revert them if required would be hugely beneficial; especially when many modifications are made but may not be captured in the work notes the user maintains.

Thanks Sarge.

 

We've also thought about this in the past, but not sure technically how we would achieve this - if you look at all the possible settings alone under the System Settings screen, there would be 100's if not 1000's of changes that would need to be somehow tracked, and reported. Hopefully one day we can come up with a solution for this.

No worries.
I'm probably showing my ignorance but I'd have thought it'd be a kin to showing the difference of a database value for the system setting prior to change and then after the change; while prepending the users unique identifier.

Yes, this is what would be required, but presenting that meaningfully in auditing data would be a challenge. If you have a look at the database schema of the SystemSettings table alone, we would some how need to present the 200 odd different fields into meaningful auditing data. Not impossible to, but we'd expect quite a bit of development work would be required to achieve it.
