When doing an autotrack command for job_type SAP, all sap-related statements are flagged as being changed, even though just one parameter was changed
In the below example, the 'step_user:' was changed, but not the other parameters.
CAUAJM_I_50191 Job definition change.
sap_step_parms: abap_name="ABAP30", step_user="S123456", banner_page=f, expiration=8, num_columns=80, copies=1, dest="P146", footer=f, print_imm=f
, num_lines=65, new_spool=t, release=f, seq_num=1, seq_num=1, seq_num=1
CA-WAAE 11.3.6 but it also happens for any other CA WAAE Service Pack on Unix/Linux/Windows
According to current design of the audit component, when we update any of the sub attribute(abap_name) value, product treating all the sub attributes under attribute(sap_step_parms) are modified
It was done intentionally as per the code comments.
We need significant design changes for the current auditing system to populate the audit data at sub attribute level.
It requires enhancement request to be reviewed by the product management
