  • 1.  PAM XML Backup Automatically

    Posted Nov 13, 2017 07:21 AM

    Hi Folks,


        We have a requirement to take back up of complete PAM Process every week without failing. 

    So I wanted to know if there is any way we can schedule in PAM to take complete back up of the process in XML format.



    Thanks in advance,

    There is no in built 'export library' scheduler, but you could build a Process definition against the API to accomplish this and use the normal scheduling tools to run this process as you require.


    Please see the SOAP web service method: exportObject Method or if you are at 4.3 sp2 the REST web service method: Export a Folder or a Document


    You will need to test the export manually to ensure the resulting XML file remains under 250mb.   If the library .xml file is larger than 250mb Process Automation will not be able to import that library xml.  If your overall library when exported to an XML file is larger than 250mb then you will need to export individual folders or otherwise break up the export into multiple xml files.

    Hi Vikash,


    There is not a way to schedule PAM process backups in Process Automation.  If you need to backup one or processes in a specific folder you would need to right click on the folder or process and export it to xml as you stated.  If you need to backup the entire orchestrator, you may want to work with your Network Admins to come up with the best plan needed for your site to backup the system.



    1. Backup entire PAM install folder.

    2. Backup DB.


    An automated backup of the processes through Process Automation would be an enhancement.  Please feel free to open an "Idea" through the Process Automation communities.  Thank you.
