Track bibliographic record supression history
In Alma, automated processes and jobs can suppress and unsuppress bibliographic records. It is also possible to suppress and unsuppress individual bib records using the metadata editor. However, Alma does not track the history of record suppressions and unsuppressions.
This means that when we come across an incorrectly suppressed record in Alma, we have no way to determine when it was suppressed and what job (or which Alma user) suppressed it. This makes it more difficult to correct workflow problems and monitor automated processes that may be acting in unexpected ways.
This idea proposes that Alma should track bibliographic record suppressions and unsuppressions. Each suppression event should include the date and time and the identifier of the job/process or Alma user who suppressed the record.

I was just looking into ways to track suppression history of bib records too and I just voted for the idea.

Just ran into an issue with a suppressed record and wondered if there was any plan for tracking the changes. Thank you!

I agree this would be useful. There's a similar idea with a lot of votes here: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/43286817-please-add-the-suppress-bibliographic-record-to
