Create a process app snapshot when you want to capture a process
app and its configuration for promotion at a later time. The snapshot captures
a process app that is running on an
SBM Application Engine server at a
particular moment in time, including configuration entities such as users,
projects, and reports.
To create a process app snapshot, you must have the
Export Process Apps privilege, which is set in
SBM Application Administrator.
A new snapshot replaces any previous version as
snapshot of the process app—the only snapshot of that
process app available for access through
. If you
want to save a snapshot for backup purposes,
it to file. For more information, see
Exporting a Snapshot
To create a process app snapshot:
Snapshots tab, click
Select a source environment from which to get deployed process
Process Apps list, select the process app that
you want to capture.
Exclude auxiliary table data if you do not
want the snapshot to include auxiliary table data. This can save a considerable
amount of time if auxiliary tables are large. Carefully consider whether you
want to include auxiliary tables containing the
File field type—the size of the files or the number of files
can cause the snapshot to grow large.
A process starts in the background to create the new snapshot.
View Activity to see the status of the new
snapshot, or click
OK, and then refresh the
Snapshots tab to see the snapshot in the list.
