Use this page to view configurations of a checkpoint. Repository checkpoints represent saved images of the repository before configuration changes are made. Checkpoints can be either full or delta images. To view this console page, click System administration > Extended repository service > Repository checkpoints > checkpoint_name.
If we are a user with a monitor or an operator role, we can only view the repository checkpoint information. If we are a user with a configurator or an administrator role, you have all configuration privileges for repository checkpoints.
Checkpoint type, either full or delta.
- A full checkpoint is created manually by the administrator and is a copy of the entire configuration repository. This copy includes applications and connectors, so it can be very large. Use a full checkpoint to restore the entire configuration repository back to the state it was in at the time the full checkpoint was made.
- When Enable automatic repository checkpoints is selected on the Extended repository service page, a delta checkpoint is created automatically when configuration changes are made. The delta checkpoint is formed by making a copy of the configuration documents that are affected by the configuration change before the changes are actually applied. Use delta checkpoints to undo recent changes. Delta checkpoints can only be restored in the reverse order in which they were created.
Checkpoint sequence number that is generated by the system.
Each delta checkpoint has a sequence number. The highest sequence number represents the most recent delta checkpoint. We can restore delta checkpoints in descending sequence number only. After the configuration repository is restored from a delta checkpoint, the product creates a checkpoint containing the configuration before restoration.
Date and time of checkpoint creation.
