Im trying to keep track of when a particular metadata field on a news item asset is changed by backend users, and have set up a trigger that sends me an email using the event ‘asset metadata updated’ whenever the metadata field in question is altered.
The trigger event seems to be working fine but the problem is that users only have to go into the edit interface of the news item and seemingly just about every metadata field gets ‘updated’ even though often not a single change is made. In other words Im getting so many ‘false’ alerts that Im forced to turn off the trigger. These same ‘field updated but nothing has actually changed’ entries also annoyingly fill up the logs. Any suggestions? Im using 5.2.8 but am testing in the latest iteration and it seems to be doing the same thing in 5.4.4.
