Organizations need to track changes made to business data for maintaining security, examining the history of a particular data record, documenting modifications for future analysis and record keeping, and being in compliance with regulations.
The audit logs help the Microsoft Dynamics CRM administrator answer questions such as:
The following operations can be audited:
There are three levels where auditing can be configured: organization, entity, and attribute. The organization level is the highest level, followed by the entity level, and finally the attribute level. We can enable or disable auditing at the organization level by setting a particular attribute value of the organization record. However, for entities and attributes, we should set a property value of the entity or attribute metadata.
For attribute auditing to take place, auditing must be enabled at the attribute, entity, and organization levels. For entity auditing to take place, auditing must be enabled at the entity and organization levels.
Auditing process for Dynamics CRM 2011 and any subsequent version is as detailed below:
This task requires the system administrator or customizer security role or equivalent permissions.
System administrators can see activities for the entities that are enabled for audit logging.
Audit Summary View provides a filterable list of the system-wide audited operations which will enable a user to quickly find the changes that you need to review.
System administrators or customizers can change the default audit settings for entities and for specific fields for an entity.
To enable or disable auditing for an entity
By default, when you start or stop auditing for an entity, you also start or stop auditing for all the fields of this entity.
To enable or disable more than one field, select the fields you want, and then on the toolbar click Edit. In the Edit Multiple Fields dialog box, in the Auditing area, click Enabled or Disabled.
