Identity Manager 8.0 - Data Archiving Administration Guide

Change Management

Initially, all changes made to data in the One Identity Manager are saved in the One Identity Manager database. One Identity Manager History Database historical data is transferred at regular intervals into a One Identity Manager. Therefore, the One Identity Manager History Database provides an archive of change information. Alternatively, change information can be exported in the form of XML files from the One Identity Manager database and transferred to the One Identity Manager History Database or any other existing archive system in the company. Statistical analyzes are carried out in the One Identity Manager History Database that simplify how trends and flows are presented. Historical data is evaluated using the TimeTrace function or using reports.
