Audit Trail for in app changes

We are looking for a way to be able to log anytime any changes are made ANYWHERE in SEAS with an entry showing what the previous setting was vs the new setting and who made the change. Currently no matter what amout of debug logging is turned on this is not logged anywhere nor is anything sent to Control Center when connected up. It would be nice to, like SSP when connected to Control Center via OSA, have all the information logged in Control Center.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas. We have already considered this as one of the items in our SSP roadmap and hence promoting this idea as planned for future release.

    Thank you,

    This is a great idea; I would offer a couple of slight additional suggestions in the same vein:

    1) I would almost rather see any SEAS setting changes be logged in the SEAS logging structure somewhere, as we no longer have nor use Control Center.

    2) We should be able to see the same level of logging for SSPCM changes within the SSP Configuration Manager logs. Many users have said for years that there should be "View" buttons for everything in SEAS/SSP/SSPCM instead of forcing admins to click the "Edit" button to simply look at settings with no intention of making edits/changes.
