It is important to protect your data by scheduling regular database back ups. In addition, regularly clean your database to remove old data so that the database does not grow beyond its capacity. If the database is overfull it can cause your integration to stop working.

Before you begin

Ensure you have the following privileges:

What you should know

  • The plugin database contains the plugin configuration, related entities, events, and alarms associated with guard tours and associated checkpoints.

  2. Select the plugin role from the entity browser and click the Resources tab.
  3. Click Cleanup (), select how long to keep data, choose when to delete old data, and then click OK.
  4. Click Backup/Restore (), choose the location for backup files, enable automatic backups at least once per week, and then click OK.
