A snapshot reflects the state of objects in CA Identity Manager at a given time. You use this snapshot data to build a report. To capture CA Identity Manager object data, you create a snapshot definition that exports the data to the Snapshot Database. Using the snapshot definition, you define the rules to load users, endpoints, admin roles, provisioning roles, groups, and organizations.
Follow these steps:
Identifies the unique name that is given for the snapshot definition.
Displays any additional information that you want to describe the snapshot.
Specifies that CA Identity Manager creates a snapshot that is based on the current snapshot definition at the scheduled time.
Note: If this option is not selected, the snapshot definition is not captured at the scheduled time. Also, the snapshot definition is not listed in the Capture Snapshot Data screen.
Specifies the number of successful snapshots retained in the Snapshot Database.
Note: If you do not specify a value for this field, CA Identity Manager stores unlimited snapshots.
Note: In the Snapshot Policies tab, if you select Access Role, Admin Role, or Provisioning Role object, select the attributes in the Role Settings tab.
Note: In the Snapshot Policies tab, if you select only the User object, by default, all user attributes related data are exported.
Note: For a selected endpoint type, by default, all data related to endpoint account attributes is exported. To capture data related to a specific attribute, select the appropriate attribute. For more information about selecting attributes that are necessary to export for an endpoint type, see the Default Reports section in the Configuration Guide.
Note: To export report data for non-standard, non-standard-trend and orphan account reports, select exceptionAccount attribute and Export Orphan Accounts check boxes.
CA Identity Manager is configured to create snapshots of the objects mentioned in the snapshot definition.
Now that you have created a snapshot definition, you can capture snapshot data immediately or can schedule the snapshot data export at a later time. The topic Capture Snapshot Data provides more information.
