Backing Up Dashboard Files

Back up Serena Dashboard files to save a copy of all metric and view definitions to a backup location.

You can optionally choose to back up all of the server files as well as the view and metric files.

To back up your dashboard files:

  1. Log into Serena Dashboard as an administrator.

  2. Select Administration | Backups.

  3. Set the target directory for the backup files in the backup root field.

  4. Choose whether to back up just the data files, or all of the files in the Dashboard server installation.

  5. Click Backup Dashboard Files Now to start the backup.
