Attachment history not available in audit_log table

Hello There,

From the QC/ALM version 12.60 attachment history not logged/available in Audit_log table. 

In the initial versions of HP QC/ALM 11 till 12.53, Audit_log table has the entry for "addition" and "deletion" of the attachments, check below screenshot


But from the QC/ALM version 12.60, when we add new attachment or delete an attachment, entries are not logged into Audit_log table.  This is affecting us, with not able to sync the defect/requirement attachments with other products like CollabNet TeamForge. Since attachments entries not logged into Audit_log, we couldn't able to know, when an attachment was added/ deleted.

Is there a option to enable the history for attachment? Is there any other option to track the attachment history when an attachment is added/deleted.

Re: Attachment history not available in audit_log table


I have reproduced the same in my environment, seems that in the past (some years ago) the same behavior was reported after changing to smart repository. It is a possibility that may be a regression of an old issue but in this 12.60 version.

See details in the next URL:

Try to contact Micro Focus support submitting a ticket to report the issue, and an engineer would be performing deeper investigation and troubleshooting.

You can add this via some DB modification. I have 2 ideas.

  1. Edit SYSTEM_FIELD table to allow you to customize attachment field. Then use customization UI to add history.
  2. Edit the DB triggers manually.
