Take the first step to start increasing your database performance

When we say it’s easy to get started with the Change Log Cloud, we mean it. Create a snapshot in Object Analyzer with your account, and configure the connection through the snapshot to your database in no time. 

Get started by having an active user with the Basic plan for Object Analyzer.

This is how you get started with the
Change Log Cloud solution

1) Create a snapshot in Object Analyzer

Create a new snapshot with your Object Analyzer account. For the Change Log Cloud you do NOT have to upload your Dynamics objects in order to create a snapshot.

Simply fill out the following:

Snapshot creation interface Object Analyzer

exclamation mark for snapshots explanation

It’s important to mark the “Auto Update Snapshot” box, so that you can actually proceed with creating the snapshot. Otherwise the “create” button will remain greyed out. 

Optional:

If you would like to have objects added to the snapshot before creating the snapshot, fill in the snapshot details as described in the get started with snapshots guide. Choose either option 1 (copy objects over) or option 2 (uploading a .txt file) to upload your objects to Object Analyzer.

2) Configure the snapshot for the Change Log Cloud

2a) When your snapshot is ready, go to “Snapshots” and select your newly created snapshot. 

2b) On the “Snapshot Details” page, move to the “Change Log Cloud Configurations” tab at the bottom of the page and press “Create configuration”.

3) Set up the NAV/BC connection, authentication and web service configuration

Follow the instructions for each configuration, and fill in the necessary information marked with * about your web services. 

Save your changes. A notification at the bottom right will show, whether the configuration was successfully saved and set up. 

Your snapshot should now be fully configured for the Change Log Cloud. It should also be listed under the “Change Log Cloud” menu at the top of the Object Analyzer interface.

4) Start using the Change Log Cloud feature

4a) Enter the Change Log Cloud on the main menu in Object Analyzer. Your newly created snapshot should be listed here. 

4b) Press the small Change Log iconto the left of your snapshot name to enter the Change Log Cloud overview and filters options.

4c) You should now be able to set and apply your own custom filters, search by user and choose a time frame. The data from your change log should also appear, if the connection was set up right.
