Identity Manager 8.0 - Data Archiving Administration Guide

Configuring the Database for Archiving using XML Files

One Identity Manager database:
  • Enable the configuration parameter "Common\ProcessState\ExportPolicy" in the Designer and enter the value FILE.
  • Configure the subsections for export and define a retention period.
  • Specify a repository for the XML files and the executing server using the configuration parameters "Common\ProcessState\ExportPolicy\ExportPath" and "Common\ProcessState\ExportPolicy\ExportServer".
  • Exporting is carried out at regular intervals by the One Identity Manager Service. Configure and enable the schedule "Export process information" in the Designer.

    Note: A file ProcessInfoExport.log is created in the depository during export. It logs the actions that are executed.

One Identity Manager History Database:
  • Declare the One Identity Manager database as source database in the One Identity Manager History Database.
  • Enable the process VI_ProcessInfo_Import in the Designer and compile the database.
  • Specify the repository for the XML files and the executing server using the configuration parameters "ProcessInfoImport\ImportPath" and "ProcessInfoImport\ImportServer".
  • Importing is carried out at regular intervals by the One Identity Manager History Service. Configure and enable the schedule "Import process information" in the Designer.
  • Specify how records that are only used for displaying progress in the Manager are handled on import using the configuration parameter "ProcessInfoImport\IgnoreDirectOperations". Enable the parameter in the Designer to ignore these records on import.

Direct Deletion of Records in the One Identity Manager Database

Direct Deletion of Records in the One Identity Manager Database

If records from a subsection should be kept in the One Identity Manager database for a certain amount of time but are not archived later however, then you have the following options:

  • To exclude subsection from archiving do not configure it for export, but only specify a retention period.
  • To delete all subsections with archiving, specify the retention period. Set the configuration parameter "Common\ProcessState\ExportPolicy" in the Designer and enter the value NONE.

The records are deleted from the DBQueue Processor database by the One Identity Manager when the retention period has ended. In addition, all entries for triggered actions that have no corresponding records in the subsections are deleted.

NOTE: If you do not specify a retention period, the records from the subsection are deleted from the One Identity Manager database during DBQueue Processor daily maintenance tasks.

If there is a large amount of data, you can specify the number of objects to delete per DBQueue Processor operation and run in order to improve performance. You use configuration parameters to make the choice for each subsection.
