Setup DB Logging in X++ (Updating events)

Setting up AX Database logging via the user interface wizard can at times be a bit of a cumbersome and slow task, especially for tables that are not very common. The job below will simply set database logging for all fields on a specific table. Simply replace “InventSalesSetup” with the table name of your own choosing. As always, test this in a non-production environment to confirm that it performs suits your own needs.

static void setDBLogOnTable(Args _args)
    TableId tableId = tableNum(InventItemSalesSetup);
    DatabaseLog log;
    SysDictTable dictT = new SysDictTable(tableId);
    SysDictField dictF;
    Set fields;
    SetEnumerator   se;

    log.logType = DatabaseLogType::Update;
    log.logTable = tableId;
    fields = dictT.fields(false,false,true);
    se = fields.getEnumerator();
    while (se.moveNext())
        dictF = se.current();

        log.logField =;
        info(strFmt("Adding field %1",;
