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

Before you begin

  • Ensure you have the following privileges:
    • View role properties
    • Modify role properties
    • Administration > Plugins

What you should know

  • The Directory database stores the plugin configuration and the related entity types.
  • The plugin role database stores the events and the camera-scanner associations.
  • It is a best practice to schedule all database maintenance during non-peak hours.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the TagTracker plugin role from the entity browser and click the Resources tab.
  3. Click Cleanup (), choose how long to keep events and 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.

    For more information, see Backing up databases.

  5. Click Apply.
