Salesforce updating audit fields

I've noticed that the field history takes note of my deleting of the value, but doesn't seem to audit the field getting set (which is what I am interested in).

Do we have any specific format which I should translate before loading the date? I think you are using Informatica cloud to push the data from oracle to SFDC.You could create a custom field specifically for this touching process or reuse any other field.For example to use the Case Description field as the touched field you could do the following.UPDATE: It has happened again, and here is some intrigue to add. Strangest part -- there is a validation rule on this field that says you can't give it a value unless a picklist is set to a certain is not.All of the accounts in the system were touched for an update this morning, and a new account has had the date switched from blank to a date. If field history tracking is turned on then the value changes would be recorded no matter what the channel of the change.I've turned field history tracking on and seen values changing via everything from workflows to the web service Api being audited.

Worth checking if the Last Modified Date and Last Modified By are throwing up an clues on who/ what's modifying the data.

Update Records with Inactive Owners - in order to allow the user to Update owner and sharing-based fields on records with inactive owners.

Salesforce Support can turn on the Create Audit Fields feature for your organization in the event it's not correctly enabled.

Do you have integrations writing to salesforce via the Api?

Lastly, just to double check that field history tracking was indeed enabled when the alleged changes took place.

And one more important thing, you cannot overwrite the standard date field that is "Created Date". I need to populate the closed date value from source to SFDC. We enabled the date fields to enable for update." id="ctl00_m_m_i_ctl00_gr_ctl03_bestanswerbody" class="textarea-bestanswerhidden" name="bestanswerbody" answerbody Id="4406396" / Hi Kuna, I'm not using Informatica cloud. Yes, I agree that we cannot overwrite the create date field, but the field I'm talking about is called as 'Closed Date" and we are importing data from other source to Informatica. I'm trying to populate SFDC object's field with this value, but after running the Informatica, the value in closed date is system date.
