Retrospectively Booking Changes to a Change Label

Booking Changes to a Change Label Retrospectively

You can select individual objects and their dependencies from any objects in the database and book them to a change label. You can book objects as snapshots or references depending on which One Identity Manager tool it applies to.

IMPORTANT: Object references cannot be grouped together with changes to single properties and snapshots of objects in the same change label. Book object references to their own change labels.

NOTE: It is not possible to add changes of single properties to the change label at a later date.

In certain cases, it is necessary to add the dependent objects to the change label as well. For example, if processes are being transported, the dependent process steps, process parameters and events should also be transported. This is also true for approval policies, approval workflows, approval steps and approval procedures.

To book objects to a change label retrospectively

  1. Select Database | Change management... from the menu in the Manager.
  2. In the dialog box "Edit change labels...", select the change label using the Change label list.
  3. Select the database table from the Table list from which you want to copy objects to the change label.
  4. To limit the number of objects found
    1. Click next to the Table menu.
    2. Enter a condition in the "Filter".

      Enter the condition as a WHERE clause for a database query. You can enter the database query directly as in SQL or use the wizard, which you open by clicking on the button next to the text box.

    3. Click Apply.
  5. To map dependent objects
    1. Click next to the Table menu.

      This opens a separate selection box that displays the ChildRelation (CR), ForeignKey (FK) and many-to-many relations for the selected database table.

    2. Under "Table relations" enable the desired table relations.

      When you select and assign an object, the objects linked by these table relationships are marked with the same change label.

  6. Select the desired objects in the "Objects list".
    • Click to add all the selected objects to the change label as a reference.
    • Click to add all the selected objects to the change label as a snapshot.

    TIP: Multi-select objects using SHIFT + CLICK or CTRL + CLICK.

To remove objects from a change label

  1. Select Database | Change management... from the menu.
  2. In the dialog box "Edit change labels...", select the change label using the Change label list.

    All objects assigned to this change label are displayed.

  3. Select the objects you want to remove from the change label in the "Assigned changes" or "Assigned objects" list.

    TIP: Multi-select objects using SHIFT + CLICK or CTRL + CLICK.

  4. Click the button to remove the objects from the change label.
