Audit Tables - Missing Value

Hello All,

I'm looking into building my own reports off the Auditing tables (BI 4.1 SP6).

I have found that many events have a Client_Type_ID on ADS_EVENT table that is equal to AbI5_LpMFxFLhxl7DV91KYY.

However when I pulled in Client Application Type these rows all disappeared.

Investigation showed that table ADS_CLIENT_TYPE_STR that ADS_EVENT joins to has 49 entries but AbI5_LpMFxFLhxl7DV91KYY is not one of them.

Does anyone know what this entry means ?

Something pretty generic given it's applied to all sorts of event types, but strange that there's no entry in ADS_CLIENT_TYPE_STR.

    Hi Nick,

    I'm not sure whether I understood your problem correctly.

    How did you investigate this further? Did you filter for the value "Abl5_*" and you did not receive any rows for that although there are some?

    Best regards,

    Hello, Thank you for mentioning this.

    I've done some analysis and I've determined there are actually 4 missing values. They are AbI5_LpMFxFLhxl7DV91KYY, AeHuywedXKRPl6V1sOVZNtA, AUcgkU0CbV1Co0ujVEw_gSA, AXUaxM4wcwtLqqcn7.eB5bQ

    These should be in the lookup table ADS_APPLICATION_TYPE_STR. The missing values I've mentioned are for Application Type ID

    Please log a SAP Support incident for this issue. When you do please mention my name and reference this number CSS1670026096

    AbI5_LpMFxFLhxl7DV91KYY is Web_IntelligenceReportService

    AeHuywedXKRPl6V1sOVZNtA is Translation Management Tool

    AUcgkU0CbV1Co0ujVEw_gSA I think the Crystal Reports RAS server.

    AXUaxM4wcwtLqqcn7.eB5bQ is CentralManagementService

    Thank you
