The Deleted Item log captures a comprehensive listing of all objects in the system that have been deleted. The log can be used to access each of the deleted item's audit trail history as part of the Audit Trail Logging mechanism.
The Audit Trail engine and logging framework (together with the Deleted Item Log) is disabled by default. To change the log settings, go to The Settings > Logging to enable this feature.
Note: The Audit Trail framework is only available in the Enterprise Edition.
To use the Deleted Items Log:
- Click the "Object Type" drop down to select one type of objects you wish to review out of the 21 presented.
- Once selected, the table below will list all previously deleted items from most recent to oldest.
- For each item, the deletion even is listed in the top panel with relevant details.
- Clicking on an item will up a panel from the bottom showing its audit trail history, with basic details on creation and update. The deletion step is not included.
Deleted vs Purged Content Items
All content items (Model, Discover, Present, publish, Formulate, Illustrate) that have been PURGED will appear in the deleted items log like all other objects. However, content items that have just been "soft deleted" will not be included. They, instead, can still be found in the content management system. Using the CMS explorer tools. and the option to see soft deleted items, users can easily find soft deleted artifacts if they wish to see and review their audit trail history.
