Data Warehouse--no attachments, action logs and history?

Carol_LeeCarol_Lee Customer IT Monkey ✭
May I know if it is by design that work items' attachments, Action Logs and History cannot be transferred to Data Warehouse?  If so, why?  Our company policy says we have to keep everything for at least 10 years.  We cannot delete records from the database if they are not readily available in the Data Warehouse.  Please advise.

    @Brian_Wiest is right.  The DW doesn't capture anything past a summary.  I've gone through a similar process of archiving attachments from resolved incidents.

    @Brian_Wiest Did you deploy the Action Log extension in a SCSM 2012 or SCSM 2016 environment?

    Thanks for the advice @Brian_Wiest @Justin_Workman.  I will need to go back to my team to see what needs to be done.

    @Brian_Wiest, Very interested by your solution also ! can you send us a other link ? http://www.systemcentercentral.com/extract-attachments-from-scsm-workitems/ is no longer available

    or post how you did your extact solution for : We did a variation where we are grabbing all attachments after closure and extracting them into a SharePoint document library, then appending the resolution field with the file path. 

    that would be so much apprecited you have no idea !

    Thx in Advance !

    @Marc_Droesbeck - I can't speak to uploading directly to sharepoint, but the app I posted here might help in a manual capacity if nothing else.
