Login with a user account that already has the Admin role and switch to the Admin Center:

Now move to the Applications panel:

Click the Options button (three dots) for the Application you are interested in and select View Details:

Choose the details you require:

Backups

This section:

  • lists all backups that have been performed of the current Application
  • provides an option run a new backup
  • offers additional options to manage existing backups

Click to perform a new backup. This can take some time if the Application is large (i.e. large amounts of source code, snapshots etc.). When a backup is run, the backup is stored on the AIP Node hosting the current Application. 

When a backup is actioned the following will occur:

  • the Application's associated schemas will be backed up in .cssbackup format
  • the Application's Delivery folder will be backed up in uncompressed format
  • Options set at version level, for example exclusion patterns, source path, objective choices (these are included from AIP Console v. ≥ 1.22) in XML format

The following location is used by default (this is set to use the "backup" folder defined for the AIP Node - see Configure AIP Node storage folder locations - optional for more information):

%PROGRAMDATA%\AipConsole\AipNode\backup\<application_name>\<appname>_YYYY-MM-DD-HH-mm-SS.zip

See Backing up an Application.

Click to download the selected backup as a ZIP file.

Click to restore the selected backup. See Restoring an Application for more information.

Click to delete the selected backup.

Database Schemas

This section lists the schemas associated with the current Application. These will be named as follows:

  • Management schema (<appname>_mngt)
  • Analysis schema (<appname>_local)
  • Dashboard schema (<appname>_central)

You may occasionally see schema names starting with uuid_ listed in the Name column. This can occur in the following situations:

  • When characters such as _ (underscore) and (full stop/period) are used in the corresponding Application name, these characters are NOT authorized for use in schema names.
  • If schemas already exist on the target CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance with the same name.

CAST Support (Sherlock)

This  section:

  • lists all Sherlock exports that have been performed of the current Application
  • provides an option run a new Sherlock export
  • offers additional options to manage existing exports

Click to perform a new Sherlock export if you are requested to by CAST Support. This can take some time if the Application is large (i.e. large amounts of source code, snapshots etc.). The following location is used to store the export on the AIP Node hosting the current Application:

<AIP_console_installation>\AipNode\data\sherlock\<application_name>\<export_name>.zip

See Creating a CAST Support Tool export for CAST Support.

Click to download the selected export as a ZIP file.

Click to delete the selected export.

Node

This section lists the AIP Node which hosts the Application - for information only:
