RapidIdentity Product Guide: Legacy UI

Data

The Server Management | Data tab allows administrators to perform 6 key functions:

  1. Export the current RapidIdentity Appliance configuration.

  2. Import a Saved RapidIdentity Appliance configuration.

  3. Update libraries to support or removed drivers or community adapters.

  4. Manage public images.

  5. Perform operations.

Export Migration Archive

Export Migration Archive allows an administrator to download a zip file of the current RapidIdentity configuration.  

Note

RapidIdentity does not currently support backing up a database that points to Microsoft SQL Server.

RapidIdentity Configuration backups can include all configuration files, database and audit tables, and shared files. Administrators can export the configuration at any time and choose a configuration export to match their organization's backup and restore policy.

The downloaded zip file can then be stored in a backup repository as well as imported into a new RapidIdentity appliance.

Follow these three steps to export the current RapidIdentity configuration.

  1. Navigate to Appliance > Management > Data tab > Export Migration Archive.

  2. Determine whether the export download should include the database configuration, audit tables, or shared files. Check any necessary checkboxes.

  3. Click Start Export.

The zip file export and download process should begin immediately and the resultant file should be stored in the browser's configured location for downloaded files.

Common Libraries

Common Libraries are the interface to manage drivers such as JDBC. RapidIdentity Connect community adapters are managed through Connect

To delete an image, click Delete Selected Files and click OK.
