Hi Viknesh,

Currently you are completely delete the record therefore you cannot get the deleted record info. I suggest that you add 2 more attributes name: IsDeleted and DeletedByUserId. Then in your delete function just need to update those 2 fields.

Hope this help,


What do you mean by the delete function? So sorry I'm new to Outsystems 

Hi Vinkesh,

Please have a look at this .oml file. I updated the code already. 

1. Updated: Gadgets entity

2. Updated: DeleteProduct action in Logic tab

3. Updated: DeleteLogs screen.

Hope this help,



Thank you so much for the help brother. It's working 

Whenever you get a solution. Please mark as solved otherwise this conversation would not be helpful to others.

Hi Vinkesh,

As Khuong  said, you should not delete the record using delete entity action /SQL query,

Rather than you should have two more attribute in Entity like IsActive/IsDeleted (Boolean type: Default Value: True ) and DeleteBy ( to store UserID())

  • Once you delete the records, don't use delete action or sql query to delete the records rather just set IsActive/IsDeleted as False and DeletedBy the UserID() and update the records using UpdateEntityName Action.
  • While displaying to screen or list, just make filter IsActive/IsDeleted= True.

Now you can get the username by using UserID() from  User Entity to make join and where IsActive/IsDeleted= False


This is correct.

There can be two approaches.

1. Soft delete 

2 Maintain history in another table for the deleted record.

PLease check the attached OML for your solution. It should work...
