Unexpected working of Field-level auditing



On changing values of properties (of a case type) that have Auditing enabled, Field-level auditing does not immediately record value changes to all properties. However, this works when the Tracer is used.

Not Applicable


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an AuditHistoryCase instance.
  2. Submit the flow action.
  3. Navigate to the screen flow.
  4. Fill in the address values.
  5. Click Save.


Root Cause

pxTimeCreated is one of the keys in the Audit history records. If the same pxTimeCreated is passed to two records, then only one of the records is inserted into the database. In the case of audits, pxGetCurrentTimeStampThreadUnique() function computes this timestamp. When two or more properties are committed to the database at the same time (or simultaneous audits), the timestamp is incorrectly computed.



This feature is implemented in Pega Platform 8.2.3.
