8.0.8 Perspective Auditing



I am testing the new auditing capabilities of Perspective and noticed that only tag writes via bi-directional bindings are send to the audit table. Any system.tag.write actions are not recorded. Many of our tag writes occur in scripts, such as a message handler after confirmation.

Please see the attached test view and tags. Project has an audit profile associated.

Is this a bug or functionality still coming?

Also, it would be great if the audit record could somehow capture what the previous value was, to facilitate rollback of inadvertent changes. E.g. if a parameter was changed from 0.5 to 0.4, the ACTION_VALUE column currently captures 0.4. Ideally it could show 0.4 (from 0.5)




Is this a bug or known limitation?



It’s a known limitation, on the list to be fixed. Currently gateway-scoped scripting functions (including everything Perspective does) basically don’t audit.

As for the ‘previous value’ - that’s also something we’re hoping to capture in the future, but there’s a non-trivial technical effort in the implementation.
