Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Master Data Services Entity-Based Staging (EBS) to change the value of an attribute for an entity in Microsoft SQL Server 2012. The original value of the attribute is NULL.
  • You run a staging process stored procedure to execute the staging process, and you set the value of the LogFlag parameter to 1.

    Note When the value of the LogFlag parameter is set to 1, transactions are logged after the staging process starts.
In this scenario, the transaction history does not log the changes.

Notes
  • This issue does not occur when you use the Master Data Services Web application instead of the stored procedure to execute the staging process.
  • This issue only occurs if the original value of the attribute is NULL.
