As a model builder, I would like to see greater flexibility to history export requests for Anaplan models.
Context: The History Export function is critical for audit checks to understand if any particular user activity/imports/processes might have caused a data issue or some connection to break. It is important as part of CoE support to check and analyze export logs to find discrepancies and look for unusual changes within a timeframe.
Challenges: The current export request can only be filtered for certain basic criteria such as 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days. This usually leads to huge file sizes (10+ GB for big models) that cannot be opened with standard text editors and makes analysis and checking extremely difficult.
Idea Request: Please add additional filtering options to the history export request such as ability to filter by timestamps (from HH:MM:SS-HH:MM:SS) or allowing history view of only a particular process/action/module. Currently, you can view history of a particular data cell but it also has the same basic filter options so additional flexibility would be extremely beneficial for analysis of history logs
