The Challenge:

As well as understanding the current setup of your application environments there are several requirements to be able to track changes to them over time. During projects there are many reasons to need to understand changes made during key stages of the work, including:

  • Being able to identify all records created, updated or deleted so that changes can be accurately repeated
  • Understanding the impact of change on an environment introduced by activities such as patching or upgrades
  • Determining whether an issue has been caused by an unexpected change
  • Determining whether changes during a test cycle have been made that have unknowingly introduced an issue

During ongoing system management security settings should be tracked to ensure changes do not result in unauthorised access. This requirement covers many areas, including:

  • User, responsibility and role management
  • Menu changes
  • Profile option settings
  • Request group and request set management

As part of a comprehensive audit and control process there are also key setups where you may wish to capture any change as it happens, including full details of what was changed, when and who made the change. The built-in solutions of the E-Business Suite and Cloud Applications for audit are cumbersome to manage and provide poor reporting options.

How ConfigSnapshot Helps:

ConfigSnapshot provides comprehensive baseline capabilities that can capture set up at a specific point in time; a baseline can cover a single setup step, a module’s entire setup or be across multiple modules. Reporting can subsequently be carried out against the historic data and comparisons can be carried out between different baselines or between baselines and the current environment data. This allows for clear understanding of change between the two points.

Even where a baseline has not been created ConfigSnapshot can use standard Oracle history fields to report data created or last updated since a particular date and/or by one or more specific users.

In circumstances where you require capturing every change to critical setups as they happen ConfigSnapshot has the ability to provide full audit tracking. Whenever a change is made ConfigSnapshot will capture details of what the change was, when it was made and who made it. Changes are captured whether they are made through the application or via database tools; in the latter case details of the terminal and IP address where the change was made are also captured.

"ConfigSnapshot is no doubt a great tool for generating comparison reports to identify differences in different e-Business environments. However, the real power lies in the migration component. The migration engine is extremely accurate and the execution precision prevents errors during configuration migrations. The details window is very helpful for configuration visualizations. DevOps is about automation, ConfigSnapshot is the bridge between IT and development"
