Transaction S_AHR_61016380 (logged changes in infotype data) calls the RPUAUD00 report. Many SAP users monitor the data entry activities of their administrators with this report to create an audit trail of employee and applicant master data changes. A similar but much-less-known tool is available in SAP R/3 Release 4.7 and up to monitor changes to Personnel Development (PD) data. Find out how to activate this PD report in your system.
Key Concept

Dear HR Expert,

Does SAP provide an audit log for personnel development infotypes similar to report RPUAUD00 used to track master data infotype changes?

— Rosetta Broenink, Systems Analyst IT Human Resources, Agrium, Inc.

In R/3 Release 4.7, SAP introduced an audit log to track changes to Personnel Development (PD) infotypes. The audit log for PD infotypes provides similar functionality to the well-known Personnel Administration (PA) infotype log. You configure the PA audit log on tables T585A, T585B, and T585C and display it via program RPUAUD00. You configure the PD infotype change log in table T77CDOC_CUST and display it with program RHCDOC_DISPLAY. The PD audit log can track changes to infotypes 1000, 1001, and 1002. You may want to track changes to PD infotypes simply to ensure that everyone follows company guidelines, or you may need to implement this feature as part of a corporate governance policy. It also works in mySAP ERP Central Component (ECC).

I’ll explain the steps required to activate the PD audit log. Then I’ll describe how to view it. Finally, I’ll discuss some options available for enhancing the PD audit log through custom development.
