Reproducing the Issue

Navigate to Admin Tools - SFAPI Data Dictionary - Click on the icon below "SOAP" (Screenshot attached below)






If the Audit log which is being downloaded/viewed is older than the 10,000th log, the message of the log would be purged


This is system behavior.

The Audit log setting is defaulted to 10,000 in the backend ie., Maximum message body count is 10,000 and Maximum log count is 1,000,000.
