Hi Mohammad.
Since the Audit Trails module is based on table triggers inserted into the Company Database...does it work with transactions created / updated by eConnect?

(I'm too lazy to install a version and test!! so taking the easy option and asking around if anyone has verified this).

Mohammad R. Daoud said...

I never tested this! But logically yes it should log any kind of operations as it is monitoring the tables at the SQL level.

If I delete a user in GP, does the audit information remain, or does it get deleted too?

Salam Mohammad and All...kefak :) ?
I have a real problem in audit trail if you could help me.
Usually I take backup from live company to be restored on TEST company for testing purpose. so the restoring covers audit trail on TEST company.
Now I have auditors, and I can't segregate the transactions in TEST company and LIVE company.
Means, there is any trigger or validation showing the company ID within audit trail database or reports?
