Audited vs papertrail gem for auditing table changes?

eren asked in Rails

I'm currently looking to use either one of these two for auditing changes made by specific user roles on a rails 6 ecommerce app using mysql. They both seem similar and I'm currently leaning towards papertrail due to the more frequent updates, but I was curious if there is any specific advantage of using one over the other(performance, ease of use...etc) or anyone knows of any pros/cons that stick out.

Would be keen to know if people have used any other gems that seemed good as well.

They are kind of similar. I think that the "main" draw back I've read regarding Papertrail is that it is storing the user ID as a string... so when you do a lookup you have to convert it back to a int.

Did you decide which one to use for your project? If yes, what were you key drivers?
