You can view the changes made to an item.

History tab

Most ALM Octane items have a History tab.

The History tab displays a chronological list of the change sets made to the item.

A change set includes all the field updates made to the item in the same edit session. Changes made after saving the form are included in a new change set.

Each change set is identified by a timestamp. The change set provides details of the user and a description of the edited fields and their values before and after the changes.

You can filter the history list by user or by field.

Tip: From the grid view, you can right click an item's field value and select Show <field> in History. The item's History tab will open, focused on changes to the selected field.
