  • The only audit field you cannot set a value for is systemModstamp.
  • If you import data into Salesforce and want to retain the audit field values of the source system, you can set the values for audit fields on the following objects: Account, ArticleVersion, Attachment, CampaignMember, Case, CaseComment, Contact, ContentVersion, Contract, Event, Idea, IdeaComment, Lead, Opportunity, Question, Task, Vote, and custom objects.
    1. From Setup, enter User Interface in the Quick Find box, then select User Interface under Customize.
    2. Under Setup, select Enable “Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation” and “Update Records with Inactive Owners” User Permissions.
    3. In the permission set or profile that you want to set audit fields with, enable the permission Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation.
    4. Using the API, create a record and set its audit fields.
Not all standard objects have all audit fields. Check the Enterprise WSDL to verify which audit fields are available for a given object.

This is not possible on update, only insert. You can promote the idea on updating the existing records audit fields in Ideas.
