Track changes in cases with improved field-level auditing (8.4)

You can now track changes in your cases in a convenient way with improved and simplified field-level auditing, in both App Studio and Dev Studio. You can enable auditing for fields, field groups, and field group lists that a data model for your case type contains and that store scalar values. Field-level auditing works for field groups that are at any level of your data model. Also, data models with persistent field history now support auditing of field data.

After you upgrade to Pega Platform™ 8.4, the field-level auditing landing page in Dev Studio is no longer available. Instead, field-level auditing is available by default for all new case types and existing case types that do not have auditing enabled. To maintain consistency with previous versions of Pega Platform, you upgrade the cases that already audit fields to be compatible with the new auditing method. When you upgrade field-level auditing, you migrate the existing field-level auditing configurations in your application.

The following figure shows configuration of field-level auditing:

By enabling field-level auditing, users of your application can check information about changes in fields, for example, their current and previous values, the last user to change the values, and the time of the change. Users see the data in a new gadget that you can embed in a form that displays case details, on the Audit tab. To use the field-level auditing gadget, ensure that your application uses UI Kit 15.
