This is expected behaviour of Change Audit > Role Based Permission > RBP user role change audit


See expected results to Question 1 and 2 from the symptom section:

  1. This is expected any filed changes related with the RBP user role change, it will record anyone who changes the filed values (which are set as dynamic group filters) of users, that will affect the Change Audit Report records, also when some of the user information change(e.g. status, type, etc.), the relevant group/role/rule change will be recorded in the RBP_USER_ROLE_CHANGE_REPORT, it does not mean that the user changed them or should require RBP admin permissions.
  2. In RBP User Role Change report, “Changed By User” information will not be recorded for role changes caused by scheduled jobs. You will see that “Changed By User” fields are empty in this scenario.

Note : Internal Enhancement PLA-17829 is created to replace the blank field with Adding a logic that for all changes caused by scheduled job, "changed by user" field will be SCHEDULED_JOB in "changed by" feilds, including firstname, lastname, username which is planned for b2105
