Change Results Table

Displays the results of all global commands/modifications sent during the current user session.

If you select an item in the table and place your cursor over it within each column, tooltips appear providing more information, if available.

Any data that does not fit within the columns is identified by an ellipsis (. . .). You can resize the column or place your cursor over the table cell to see its tooltip text.

If you send another global command/modification at a later time during the current user session, the result entries are added to any existing result entries from prior commands/modifications sent during the session.

The most recent entry appears at the top of this table by default. If desired, you can sort the results.

See the Working with the Change Results Viewer section for more information on manipulating and using the table data.


Displays the date and time the command/modification was sent.


Displays the name of the object to which the command/modification was sent. The object’s full reference identifier appears in a tooltip when you place the cursor over the name.

Change Type

Displays the type of command/modification sent.


Displays the list of parameters for the command/modification that was sent. For example, for a Release command, an attribute and priority such as Present Value, 15 (Scheduling) appear in the Parameters column.


Displays the status of the command/modification that was sent (for example, OK or an explanation of failure).


  • An OK status for a command indicates the supervisory device validated and accepted the command, but does not necessarily indicate the command executed successfully. There may be cases where the command is accepted, but fails execution. For example, a Route command to a trend extension may be accepted by the supervisory device with a status of OK; but if the actual routing of the trend data fails due to the ADSADS offline or other error, the failure is noted in the Audit log at that point in time.
  • An OK status for a modification indicates the modification executed successfully.
