Updating a Snapshot

When you update a snapshot, you recapture the process app that is running in the source environment, including configuration entities such as users, projects, and reports, refreshing the information in the snapshot.


To update a snapshot, you must have the Export Process Apps privilege (set in SBM Application Administrator).

Important: The updated snapshot replaces any previous version as the "latest" snapshot of the process app—the only snapshot of that process app available for access through Application Repository. If you want to save a snapshot for backup purposes, Export it to file. (See Exporting a Snapshot.)

To update a snapshot:

  1. On the Snapshots tab, select the snapshot you want to update.
  2. In the Actions column, click the Update icon.
A process starts in the background to update the new snapshot. Refresh the Process Apps tab to see it in the list or go to Activities to see the status of the snapshot.
