Logging user security role changes

  • 1.  Logging user security role changes

    Posted Dec 30, 2019 12:57 PM
    Hi all,

    We've configured logging on the Security User Role table to capture changes related to user role assignments (Creates, Updates and Deletes).  The log files generated don't seem to be giving me what I am looking for.  Is there a better way to capture logs for changes to user security for audit purposes?

    Many thanks,
    Melissa

    Melissa,

    If the out of box database log from Microsoft is not giving you the information you need from an audit perspective you will either have to look at other 3rd party solutions or a create a custom solution yourself.

    I wrote about the gaps/shortcomings of the native database log in this whitepaper: https://www.gofastpath.com/hubfs/eBooks-Whitepapers/Fastpath_Audit_Trail_vs_D365FO.pdf

    An example report of what you can get with a 3rd party solution would be like the report below:
    Security User Role Changes

    If you have any questions about auditing or tracking changes (using native AX/D365FO tools or 3rd party) feel free to reach out and I would be happy to help.
