APPX Application Design Audit History

Effective with Release 5.0.0, APPX Application Design includes an audit history feature.

Application Design

Each APPX application has an Audit History design file (AUDTHIST) which is used to record a history of each change made within an application.

An audit history record is written each time a change is made or when a design element is added to a file or process while in APPX Application Design. Each audit history record contains the date and time the change was made, the user ID of the designer who made the change, the mode the designer was in when the change was made, the design level, a message indicating the event point in which the change was made, and a note entered by the designer describing the nature of the change. The audit history records represent a chronological record of changes made to an application over time.

Object History

When designing an object, the Audit Information toolbar button can be used to view the audit history of the current object.

The audit history for the current object can also be accessed by invoking the Audit Information menu item on the Toolbox pull-down menu.

The audit history for the current object can also be accessed by entering Option 98 with the keyboard.

When the audit history for an object is displayed, a list of all changes is displayed with the most recent changes at the top. The full detail for an audit record can be displayed by selecting the desired change record and pressing RETURN or by selecting the Detail button on the bottom of the screen.

Object Browser

The Audit History Audit Browser can be found on the Tools menu within Application Design. The Audit Browser lists all changes to the application in reverse date order. Consequently, the most recently changed objects will appear at the top of the scrolling list.

Audit Search

The Audit History Audit Search utility can be found on the Tools menu within Application Design.

The Audit History Search utility can be used to find all objects within an application or a group of applications which meet the specified criteria. The various fields on the search screen act as search filters. Only those objects which meet all of the specified search criteria will be include in the search result.

The Define Apps button can be used to include other applications in the search. The Execute button searches the specified applications applying the specified search criteria and then display the Search Results screen listing all of the design objects that met the specified criteria.

Audit Info Summary

APPX System Administrators can review the audit history for all applications from within System Administration.
