Sets the ignored field names.
Default is "AuditState" and "AuditTimeStamp".
Best you call it once at startup of your solution.
With plugin version 4.4 you can use * on the end of the name to match all names starting with same text.
This list is not limited. You can make a list as long as stuff fit in memory.

Only for Audit.Changed and similar, which detect the field list automatically. Not used for Audit.Changed2 and others, which take a field list.

With plugin version 7.3 this can be a list of field names in each fields parameter.

You may best call this in start script of the solution to setup Audit as needed.

This function takes variable number of parameters. Pass as much parameters as needed separated by the semicolon in FileMaker.
Please repeat Fields parameter as often as you need.


Set ignored field names:

MBS( "Audit.SetIgnoredFieldNames"; "sAuditState"; "sAuditTimeStamp" )
