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 given for the snapshot definition.
Displays any additional information you want to describe the snapshot.
Specifies that CA Identity Manager creates a snapshot 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: To export report data for non-standard, non-standard-trend and orphan account reports, select exceptionAccount attribute and Export Orphan Accounts check box.
CA Identity Manager is configure 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 schedule the snapshot data export at a later time. The topic Capture Snapshot Data provides more information.
