Case grouping criteria (form)

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Compliance and internal controls > Setup > Audit > Case grouping criteria.

Use this form to set up the criteria that determine how audit violation records are grouped into audit cases.

Audit policies are run in batch mode. When you run an audit policy, audit violation records are created. Multiple audit violation records are grouped together and associated with audit cases.

By default, cases for each audit policy are grouped by the audit policy rule. If you prefer, you can select other criteria for grouping using the User defined case grouping criteria fields. You could, for example, group expense headers by project ID and vendor invoices by vendor account. If you were to do this, all expense header violations that have the same project ID would be grouped in the same case, and all vendor invoices that have the same vendor account would be grouped in the same case.


For audit policy rules that are based on a Duplicate query type, violations are not grouped by policy rule or by the Grouping criteria fields. Instead, they are grouped by the criteria that are built into the audit policy rule. For example, if a policy rule evaluates expense reports for duplicate expenses of the same amount, merchant ID, and date, all expenses that have the same values in those fields would be one case. If other expenses had different values, those would be a separate case.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.




Document type

Select the type of document to define case grouping criteria for.

Grouping criteria

Specify how to group audit cases for the selected document type.

  • Audit policy rule – Group audit cases by policy rule.

  • Document attributes – Group audit cases by document attributes. After you select this option, use the User defined case grouping criteria fields to select the fields to use when audit cases are grouped.


Policy rules that are based on a Duplicate query type do not use these settings.
