AUDIT_ADVISOR_COMKEY requires special syntax that is unique to the option you choose. When following the syntax below, replaces values between the < and> symbols with values of your choosing:

Option Setting or Syntax Description Example
Sync sync The comKey used will be the current user's instcd

Use the sync option:


Static <comkey> The comKey used will be the one configured

Use the static option:


Dropdown dropdown:<comkey1>:<name1>,<comkey2>:<name2> The comKey used will be chosen by the user from a drop-down

Use the dropdown option:

dropdown:999:DARSweb,BUS:Business,ENG:Engineering,WIP:No IP Courses

Mapped mapped:<instcd1>:<comkey1>,<instcd2>:<comkey2> The comKey used will be determined by the user's instcd via a lookup

Use the mapped option:


InstID Mapped instidMapped:<instid1>-<instcd1>:<comkey1>,<instid1>-<instcd2>:<comkey2> The comKey used will be determined by the user's instid and instcd via a lookup.

Use the instid mapped option:



Simplified Configuration
To simplify configuration, override each Instcd with your Static COM value. This approach can be used if a single COM is used per Instcd rather than using Special Syntax.
