3069546 - Read audit log - what are standard and custom fields

Symptom

Manage Audit Configuration > Read Audit
Here you have a Quota and Usage section with Standard and Custom fields
You can have 5 standard fields and 10 custom fields configured as data sensitive fields for the read audit
What determines if a field is a standard or custom field?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

Manage Audit Configuration > Read Audit
Here you have a Quota and Usage section with Standard and Custom fields
You can have 5 standard fields and 10 custom fields configured as data sensitive fields for the read audit

If you use the information icon


A standard field is described as:
Standard fields are delivered by SAP SuccessFactors and grouped by their meaning. For example, National ID and Social Security Number have the same meaning, so they are grouped together. You can configure any number of fields in the same group as sensitive and it only counts as one field in the quota.

A custom field is described as:
Custom fields are configured differently for each customer. They can be either a reserved custom field in the data model, such as custom01, or an MDF field created by customers. Each custom field that is configured as sensitive counts as one field in the quota.

Cause

The information in the information icon for the custom field is wrong.

This was reported to our Product Management to correct this information to make it clearer as to what is a custom field for Read Audits.

Resolution

To confirm which are standard fields:

Go to Admin Center > Manage Audit Configuration - Click “View Details” under Allowable Sensitive Personal Data Fields section to redirect to Read Audit Config page,

in this page, if you see a filed has a exclusive label, then this field is standard field for RAL. If don’t have a label, it’s a custom field.

 

For example, see below pics, we can tell TemplateID of Compensation module has label “Compensation and Salary Information” so it is standard field, benefits-rate from EC module doesn’t have label, so it’s custom.

It is not possible to change a custom field to a standard field or a standard field to a custom field.
