Data type changes are not registered in the History table



Changing individual records manually in the data types, populates the History table with Audit tracking information. However, uploading data in the data type using files, does not populate the History table with the Audit tracking information.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Access the Import option of a data type with Local data storage.
  2. Perform the three import steps until it is completed successfully with importing data.
  3. View the data type table relation through the Sysadmin > Database table.
  4. Perform a Select on the Records table to confirm it is filled.
  5. Perform a Select on the History table to confirm it is empty.

Root Cause

Audit tracking is supported only while performing a transaction on an individual row. Hence, the Records-Editor add/update/delete at row level, created audits in the History class. However, the import is a bulk add/update/delete process. Hence, audit tracking is not supported.


An enhancement request, FDBK-30506, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
