Define Auditing Properties for a Relationship

When you enable auditing on a relationship, you define which changes to child object records are tracked in the parent object's history records. Use the Auditing page in the Relationship Properties window to define auditing options for records in the relationship.

Auditing options are not available for "owned by" relationships.

To define auditing properties for a relationship:

  1. Open the Relationship Editor. See Open the Relationship Editor.
  2. Select Add to add a new relationship or select Edit to edit an existing relationship.
  3. Select the Auditing page.
  4. Select Enable Auditing to enable auditing for the records within the relationship.
  5. Define auditing options, which differ depending on the type of relationship.
    • For an "owns" relationship, choose to create audit records when a child object is added, edited, or deleted, and then select:
      • Combine Child Changes: Creates a single audit record indicating that a linked record was updated, but does not provide field-level details.
      • Separate Field Edit Records: Creates separate audit records for each field changed in a linked record. This option is only available if you select Audit Edits.
    • For a "linked" relationship:
      • Audit Deletes: Select to track when a linked object is deleted.
      • Audit Linked Records: Select to track when a linked object is added.
      • Audit Unlinked Records: Select to track when a linked object is unlinked from the parent.
  6. Select OK.
  7. Publish the Blueprint (File > Publish Blueprint) to commit the changes, or save the Blueprint (File > Save Blueprint) to continue making other changes.
