We need to detect the Last Discovered Time of a CI

We need to detect the Last Discovered Time of a CI

Please provide a Last Accessed By attribute (and associated functionality to populate/update the attribute). This would be associated with the Last Access Time, similar to how to Create Time and Last Modified Time are associated to the Created By and Updated By fields (respectively).

Today we only have the Last Access Time to work with but don't know what process keeps touching the CI (for example, a CI is never a candidate for deletion because some process keeps it active by "touching" it).

What about the last accessed by feture?
Ivan has what he wanted but we still wonder some time why a CI does not age out and the "last accessed by" attribute would be THE solution.

Hello DominikB,

yes...  we are glad that the 3 new attributes were added and serve for purposes I have described in previous posts (mainly related to UD).  But I agree with you that Last Accessed By would be useful as well - for aging purpose and its debugging. Have a nice day. I.

Thanks for your feedback. The LastAccessBy attribute feature is in the product backlog. We'll prioritize it together with the other items for the coming PI.
