What you should know

  • The Directory database stores the plugin configuration, the related entities, and the blacklist.
  • The plugin role database stores the events and related entity configuration.
  • Event grooming and cleanup is unavailable in this version of the plugin.

  3. Select the plugin role from the entity browser and click the Resources tab.
  4. Click Backup/Restore (), choose the location for backup files, enable automatic backups at least once per week, and then click OK.
