Generate a Snapshot

This option enables you to create data that can be exploited in the CAST Dashboard. The action will generate a Snapshot on an Application basis, depending where you launch the action from - i.e. for multiple Applications if launched outside the Application editor and for the current Application if launched from within the Application editor.


You can launch this option from various locations:

Note that you can manage your snapshots in the Application editor (Execute tab) or in the Dashboard Service editor.
