Version 2021

Preview Feature: View Change History

MicroStrategy 2021 Update 5 introduces the ability to view change history. Change history is the process of logging information about changes to objects in a project. Change history tracks the changes to each object in the system. This makes it easier for administrators to quickly determine when and by whom certain changes were made. For example, reports using a certain metric executed correctly in a test two weeks ago, but no longer execute correctly in this morning's test.
