Dataverse | New Auditing Features

February 14, 2022 Leave a comment

Audit data is now stored separately from customer records so an organization’s audit log can grow to many terabytes in size without limiting available Database capacity.

Audit Retention Policy:

  • In the ‘Admin Center’, on the ‘Environment’ page now we have ‘Auditing -> Manage’ option to set the Audit Retention Policy.
  • Select one of the options from the dropdown to set the retention duration.
  • Audit records are automatically deleted after the retention period is over, relieving administrators from the burden of deleting audit data manually. 
  • It is also possible to keep the audit log indefinitely by not specifying a retention period.

Free up capacity:

  • With the new audit deletion options, Administrators can delete the logs of one or more audited tables, delete the user access logs, or delete logs up to a specific date in order to free up storage space.

Auditing User’s Team membership in CRM

January 20, 2014 1 comment

Recently we got a requirement to track Team membership of a User (i.e., Log when a User gets Add/Remove from a Team).

We checked whether the OOB Audit feature would fulfill this requirement.

Audit feature does logs an entry every time we add/remove a User from Team but as separate events.

Add User to a Team – Audit

  • An entry with Event name ‘Associate Entities’ gets created in Audit History
  • On double click on the entry you get below window with details of Team that User added to.

Remove User from a Team – Audit

  • An entry with Event name ‘Disassociate Entities’ gets created in Audit History
  • On double click on the entry you get below window with details of Team that User removed from.

More Info

  • Audit feature provide details of User’s Team membership, but not in a detailed manner.
  • Also ‘Associate Entities & Disassociate Entities‘ event’s will get logged in ‘Audit History’ every time you perform Associate\Disassociate operations with your N:N related entities.
  • If the details provided in Audit does not give you more details, You can go for a Plugin to log more details when User gets Add/Remove from a Team.
