Salto supports fetching elements' last-change-by username (author) and change-at time for some business applications.

This information is being used in environments' "Audit" tab, where you can filter changes according to their author and time, and in reports from monitors set in the "Monitor" tab.

Today, Salto supports fetching some of this information for these business applications: Salesforce, NetSuite and Zendesk.


Salto supports fetching elements' last-change-author and last-change-time in Salesforce, for the following:

  1. Standard object instances

  2. Custom objects, custom object instances and custom object fields

Any other elements, e.g., ones from installed packages do not have the additional change-by / at data.

Note that fields will be annotated with last-change-authors from the parent object as well as the field itself.


📘 Salto will only fetch NetSuite last-change-author information for changes made after an environment's first fetch.

Salto supports fetching elements' last-change-author and last-change-time in Zendesk. To enable this, add the includeAuditDetails flag to your adapter configuration file fetch section:

zendesk {
fetch = {
includeAuditDetails = true

Once this flag is activated, the last-change-author information will be added after the second fetch (for changes that happened after the last fetch).

The following Zendesk types have last-change-author and last-change-time:

  • Automation

  • App Installation
