Backing up the Maintenance Snapshot

Automating the Download of the Maintenance Snapshot

To automate the downloading of the snapshot, you create a script file containing the required EPM Automate commands, and schedule it (for example, using Windows Scheduler or Linux CRON job) to run after the daily maintenance of the environment is complete. See "Scenario 8: Backing up Application Snapshot to a Computer" in Working with EPM Automate for Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud for a sample Windows script that you can repurpose to download the artifact snapshot.

  1. Access the environment as a Service Administrator. See Accessing EPM Cloud.
