  2. Switch ON the OData API Audit Log and/or the SFAPI Audit Log toggle switch, together with "Enable Payloads in ODATA/SFAPI Audit Log for Edit operations" option.
  3. Afterwards, Click on "Enable All Payloads button." You should see the time stamp of when it will expire. Note: Once you Enabled the audit logs it will only be active for 9 hours, afterwards it will expire. It is the current behavior. If you think that this feature is limited and should be enhanced, kindly do so by filing an enhancement.
  4. If you do not click Enable All Payloads or it is already Expired, you will see a message like in your Audit Logs.
  5. This is a sample payload that could be seen after the audit settings are enabled.
