You can compare snapshots to review the changes made between two snapshot versions.
A snapshot is an image of the security configuration at a specific date and time. A snapshot consists of:
|1.||Click Security audit.|
|2.||Click the Snapshots tab.|
|3.||Sub-task: Compare subsequent snapshots.|
|3.1||In the list, find and select a snapshot.|
|3.2||In the list, find and select the next snapshot.|
Note: Loading the snapshot data can take some time.
|3.4||Compare the objects for each object type separately.|
| ||In the Select security object type field, select an option.|
|3.5||In the First snapshot pane, you can review the objects that are:
- Changed (marked in blue)
- Deleted (marked in red)
For each changed object, you can review the changes in the Differences pane.
| ||In the list, find and select a changed object (marked in blue).|
Note: Click Show changes only to only have the changed, deleted, and added objects shown in the First snapshot grid and the Second snapshot grid.
|3.6||In the Second snapshot pane, you can review the objects that are added (marked in green).|
|4.||Sub-task: Compare non-subsequent snapshots.|
|4.1||You can also compare non-subsequent snapshot versions. If you do so for the first time, you can manually do a full compare or only compare selected records.|
| ||In the First snapshot field, enter or select a snapshot.|
|4.2||In the Second snapshot field, enter or select a snapshot. Select a snapshot version later than but not next to the First snapshot.|
Note: If this is the first time that you compare these snapshots, in the first snapshot pane, the Compared field is empty.
|4.3||You can choose to only compare selected objects.|
| ||In the First snapshot grid or in the Second snapshot grid, in the list, find and select the objects to be compared.|
|4.4||Click Compare selected.|
|4.5||You can also do a full compare. So, all objects of the selected snapshots are compared.|
| ||Click Full compare.|
Note: A full compare can take some time.
