The Change Log Cloud “remote” provides improved logging and usability features from the standard change log in Dynamics NAV and Business Central 365.
Store your data in the Azure Cosmos by tranferring all your change log entries, thereby reducing your database costs greatly. Increase the overall performance of your system by avoiding slow-downs with change log entries. User-friendly solution for your team.
You only need to keep 1 week of data in your Business Central database. Store the rest in Azure Cosmos by creating a snapshot of your objects. You only pay per snapshot.
The search function has a user-friendly interface and shows results in seconds. All search results can be grouped per incident and is displayed in the smart view.
Accessible online from anywhere 99.9% of the time as long as there is an available internet connection. Transfer your change log to the Azure Cosmos online database.
Tired of NAV or Business Central running slowly because of all the stored data from past logs and slow logging? Increase the system performance for every user.
Filter data by table, field, from-value, to-value and change type. Limit it further by specifying the user and date in the filter.
Track whether a field has been edited and by whom the change was made. Includes date and time stamps. Choose a simple or grouped view, the change history or a summary.
With the filter integrated in the Change Log you can get a fast and focused search. Limit the scope with a keyword and quickly get a summary, the history of an edit and by whom the changes were made.
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.
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:
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.
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”.
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.
4a) Enter the Change Log Cloud on the main menu in Object Analyzer. Your newly created snapshot should be listed here.
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.
