The Change log plugin is a tool for viewing and handling change log created as a result of any change done to any item, module or asset in the CapaInstaller system. The change log shows all the changes implemented with success.
The Change log plugin contains the individual change log for every plugin. It is possible to archive the log information to ensure that the log only contains the data relevant for management.
By default, the log file will be archived 3 months from the current date. Archiving will remove the data permanently from the change log. The data will be archived to a comma-separated text file to the path defined in the Archive dialog. Make sure that the archive policy in your company is aligned with the change process. To be able to control rights on the archive, security must be enabled and the user must have System Manager rights.
Copy to clipboard
If you right-click a record, i.e. an item in the list, the Copy to clipboard menu item will be available. This feature makes it possible to copy the log information to another incident/problem management solution and other systems where it might be relevant.
How to archive from the change log
Activate the Archive dialog:
Specify the location of the archive file.
The data is now removed from the change log and saved in a comma-separated file.
