UI audit screen highlighting changes #5486
We want to make deltas in the audit screen be more discoverable. When you have a small, single-character change to something like a project variable set, it can be very difficult to spot the delta currently. If we add padding and borders, we can make this more discoverable very easily.
Internally raised by TAMs and TAM customers.
some thoughts about your proposal to make it finally right:
Wondering what you think?
Hi Franz (cc @fsettele),
Thanks for your thoughts here. There's been similar feedback internally about collapsing this view further, and having the ability to click "next, next, next" through each of the changes, so we'll look into that next week and see what we can come up with.
For this issue, the focus is purely on UI-updates and not making any changes to the API with regards to how the diffs are currently generated/stored on the backend (so the changes we make for this issue will work consistently with any previously-stored events).
However, we can can definitely consider a more advanced diff-engine in the future, where the output would be more similar to GitHub diffs, as you mentioned.
Regarding the variable issues you've noticed, we haven't been able to reproduce, but if you see this consistently, we'd recommend reporting that to support and our support staff can investigate further.
