Ticket rasied with support: #02082964
There seems to be a huge flaw in the Infrastructure Changes Audit Report - if you want to exclude a single account, it doesn't JUST exclude that account, it then ticks all the other accounts to have in the report. But, if a new user account uses vSphere later it doesn't get automatically ticked. Ideally we'd like the ability to JUST exclude an account, or use wildcards to include/exclude. In its current form we see now choice but to report on all accounts, which means the report is huge and cumbersome.
Objective: Run an audit report, but exclude account Account1 from the audit report as it is very “noisey” – it runs all backups.
Set Infrastructure Changes Audit report interval to “1 Day”
Now, in “Changed by” section deselect just Account1
The problem is, this doesn’t just exclude this account… what it does, it now makes it a report based only on the ticked accounts. So, if I another user starts using vcenter (perhaps jbloggs.adm) they will not be in the report! This means this report cannot simply exclude specified accounts.
I can demonstrate this by now changing the Interval to 1 Week, and suddenly a few other users appear in there unticked
