Pigment tracks all of the data updates done on Blocks (List and Metrics) so that users can see when a change was made and by which user. 

 

Table of content

 

 

Block specific view

 

On List and Metrics, the update history of the Block is available from the icon on the top-right (near the Block settings).

This panel displays all "updates" which have been recorded for that specific  Block. 
Use the Controller on top of the panel to filter events by Date, User and Action. 

Check the "Changes tracked" section, for more details.

Updates tracked

 

Edits (manual input)

 

All manual inputs on Lists and Metrics are tracked as an "Edit" Action.

On Lists, hover over the update to check which Property and which item was edited (to identify the item, the current "Default Display property" of the item is displayed). If the item of the list has been deleted, no identifier is displayed.

If some Blocks used in the formula have been renamed after the formula update, the Update History will display an updated version (current version) of the formula with the new Block names. Click on "Show original version" to display the formula exactly as it was when it was updated.

Note

If some Blocks used in the formula are now deleted, the updated version might not be available. In this case, only the "original version" is available. 

 

 

Import

 

All CSV imports on Lists and Metrics are tracked as an "Import" Action. 

 

Click on the image to expand the view

 

Hover over the summary to see more import details:

  • number of item/values inserted
  • number of item/values updated
  • number of item/values skipped

If the "auto-create missing Dimension item" option is enabled on the import, some dependent Dimensions ( = used by the List/Metric on which the import has been made) might have been impacted by the import. Those changes are flagged by the "Dependent Import" action.

 

 

List item deletion

 

All item deletions on Lists and Metrics are tracked as a "Delete Item" Action.

Warning

The access right system is not applied to the Update History. For this reason, Pigment recommends granting Update History access users who can access data from the entire App.
