How to use the Audit Trace tab

Using the icon bar

Click To

Delete an audit trace.

AccountingIntegrator Enabler removes the Business-Document from the audit trace list, and places it in the Business-Document tree structure in the right pane.

Move the selected audit trace up in the list. This enables you to set the execution sequence for a set of Audit-Rules.

Move the selected audit trace down in the list. This enables you to set the execution sequence for a set of Audit-Rules.

Defining fields to audit

Selecting fields to audit

From the Business-Document tree structure in the right pane, drag-and-drop nodes to the fields in the field definition table in the left pane.

You can use Shift-Click to select a set of fields between the first and last click or Ctrl-click to select a set of non-adjacent fields.

Fields you cannot audit

The following fields are not available for selection:

  • Fields already defined as audit fields
  • Fields hierarchically inferior or superior to audit fields already defined

These fields are marked with the icon. If you try to use a field that is restricted from use, the application displays the following error message:

"The field <field name> cannot be added since this field or one its hierarchy has already been added."

For example

To explain this constraint, consider the example of a Business-Document that comprises the following fields:

 FIELD-1

 FIELD-X

FIELD-A

FIELD-B

FIELD-Y

FIELD-Z

FIELD-2

Each time you select a field, that selection changes the set of possible remaining fields.

For example, if you select FIELD-X, then the set of potential fields that you could select becomes:

FIELD-Y

FIELD-Z

FIELD-2

This is because the fields hierarchically superior (FIELD-1) and inferior (FIELD-A and FIELD-B) can no longer be selected.

However, if you select FIELD-Y, then the set of potential fields that you could select becomes:

FIELD-B

FIELD-Y

FIELD-Z

FIELD-2

Completing the field definition table

Specify the following attributes for each Business-Document field extracted for audit.
