Enable Auditing Feature for a Repository

Auditing is a repository-level feature that model administrators can use to record model changes in Enterprise Architect. After switching Auditing on, you can view information on changes such as:

Who changed an element? How many elements they changed? When they changed the data? What the previous values were? What type of elements they changed?

Auditing does not record changes to: Document Templates, Model Documents, Baselines or Profiles.
