Specifying Parent-Child Associations for Audit

In Siebel Business Applications, parent-child associations are set through:

  • MVG (multi-value group) fields
  • Parent-child applets

Audit Trail can keep track of changes in parent-child associations. For example, you can audit the association (and dissociation) of contacts with accounts.

This task is a step in Process of Configuring and Using Audit Trail.
