You create snapshots to be able to use these Security and compliance studio functions:
  • Security explorer
  • Match roles
  • Compare snapshots
A snapshot is an image of the security configuration at a specific date and time. A snapshot consists of:

  • All securable objects: roles, duties, privileges, and entry points, with the related license type and access level.
  • The associations between the securable objects: user-role, role-duty, role-privilege, duty-privilege, and privilege-entry point.

You create a snapshot in these cases:

  • The first time you want to explore the security configuration or match roles.
  • Changes are made to the security configuration. So, these changes become available for the security explorer or match roles function.
  • You want to compare the current security configuration with a previous security configuration.

You are advised to create snapshots:

  • In batch, if you frequently make changes to the security configuration.
  • In the background, because the creation of a snapshot can take quite some time.
