Analyzing Data from the Process Monitoring System

In the One Identity Manager, you have the option of logging the change history of objects and their properties. Different methods can be used to track changes within the One Identity Manager.

In the process view of the Manager, the system shows the process data from running processes and process steps, the process data for direct database actions and the recorded data changes in graphical format.

The process view is split into the following:

  • A process data form displaying the process data

    The process view's process data form gives the current user an overview of the actions they have triggered in the system and the resulting processes. This information is available for the overall process and for individual steps.

  • A log showing the recorded data changes
Prerequisite for displaying the process view:
  • The process view is available only if the configuration parameter "Common\ProcessState" is enabled and the process monitoring procedure is configured.
    • The process view shows the process data only if the process data recording procedure is configured.
    • The process view shows the log only if the data change recording procedure is configured and the current user has as a minimum viewing rights in the tables Dialogwatch*, DialogProcess* and QBMWatchOperationSummary.
  • The current user must be able to access the program function "Option to show process data." (Common_ProcessView) via their system user.

To open the process view:

  • In the Manager menu, click View | Process data
