Working with My Instances : Viewing instance history using audit trail

Viewing instance history using audit trail

Business Process Portal maintains a complete transactional audit of a process instance, in the form of events in the database. These events capture changes in the process instance status, as well as dataslots.
Note: You need administrator privileges to view audit trail of events across Business Process Server applications. For more information, see Chapter 17:"Using the Audit Events Page" in Business Process Portal Administrator’s Guide.
You can view the instance history information in the PSV Flow View page , or directly (without open the process status) by using the Audit History icon provided in the My Instances page.
You can configure the maximum number of events that are processed for showing the Audit History for any PI. To configure this, in bpserver.conf file, modify the parameter value for The default value for this parameter is set to 400. A 0 or negative value results in processing all the events for a PI.
Note: You need ACL permissions to see the audit history information. For more details, see Business Process Portal Administrator’s Guide.
To view the audit instance history:
1. From the My Instances page, click the Audit History icon () for the process instance, whose information is to be viewed.
