In the web client you will find the option under "Configuration" data Storage
This function provides the administrator or authorized data owner with an archiving function for the created projects and their content.
The selected folder including all files and subfolders will be transferred to the specified path. At the same time, a symbolic link is created in the original folder which directly points to the new UNC path.
The use of symbolic links is not active by default and must be activated.
The corresponding instructions can be found at the end of this article
Configuration of the templates
The Manage data retention policy templates lets you create and edit your own templates for data archiving.
The default setting AD HOC manages the options for instant archiving a selected folder. Under Create a new template you can configure and save your own template.
The selected template can be named and activated or deactivated accordingly.
The ADHOC configuration is used for the manual option. It allows you to select individual folders from the diagram directly for data retention by using the displayed function.
The logging of the process can also be activated on request. The file is then under \ Program Data \migRaven\ Archivelog created, whereby the Archivelog Folder must be created first.
The e-mail setting in the migration client must be first be configured to use the automatic e-mail notification. This option sends a confirmation e-mail to the specified data owner after the completion of a scheduled archive. On request also with a rudimentary or complete summary in the form of a .csv file.
Here you define time slots where data retention tasks of migRaven to be executed. Check for ADHOC tasks migRaven all 15 minutes if tasks are pending. Tasks that are added via a separate policy 1x are checked every hour and executed if necessary.
External storage paths
In the default setting target path the folder is created within the selected folder (within the project root).
Alternatively, there is the option to outsource the target path externally:
Exclude directories and file formats:
In the settings can be specific file formats (endings) and entire directories
exclude from archiving.
Enter the appropriate parameters in the box provided and save the changes
It should be noted:
The data retention policy generally writes with the account of the registered Resource Scan Service. So it's important to have access to the external target path for this account.
- Only one data owner is set to one main directory at a time. If the same Data Owner is authorized on several, different directories, this can trigger an Error 500 error when calling the WebClient.
Activate symbolic links
The default setting for the symbolic links looks like this:
You can get the status by calling the Command Console and the command
fsutil behavior query SymlinkEvaluation
If the source path is on the local machine this is sufficient. For the other, remote-> remote variant, the symbolic links for remote-> remote must be activated.
This can be done with the command line fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation R2R: 1 be executed
