"Performed by" displayed as "System" in Audit Trail



Value for 'performed by' is displayed as 'System' in Audit Trail.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Click on the Audit trail of the case.

Root Cause

During processing of a case, at the time of resolution, the 'act A' is called but, the developer has hardcoded pxRequestor.pxUsername value to 'system'. Declare onchange prints stack trace when performed by value. This changed from userID to 'System'.


Remove the hardcoded value of pxRequestor.pxUsername in an activity identified by declare onchange.
