We have audit entity in 4.0 available on codeplex. If I upgrade to 2011 will the data in 4.0 Audit entity will be available in 2011 Audit which is out of box. If not what could be the solution?
Thanks in advance.
CRM 2011 has a different auditing built-in that is different then the crm 4 audit available in codeplex.
When you migrate to crm 2011, the existing crm 4 audit entities will stay in place, but I'd recommend turning off the crm 4 audit component and only retain the entities so you retain the old logs.
Then all new audit activities will happen in the new audit area in crm 2011. The audit historical data is NOT automatically migrated to crm 2011 audit format.
Thanks Alex. If automatic migration is not possible can I migrate the data using data migration manager kind of tool? I feel the structure is matching but I dont have schema for crm2011 to check the same.
Behind the scenes the structure is different in CRM 2011. All audit data is stored in a single table. Looking at the SDK it appears we can not create historical entries. This could change in future versions of the sdk.
SO my guess is that currently we can not manually create historical entries in the audit table.
I've actually managed to accomplish this through the backend. I used a SQL script to manipulate the data from our custom audit database into the format required for 2011. It was painful and its only just gone live. I'll put a blog together about it and post the link here later this week.
