Import archived data

When the Purge Events task runs, FortiNAC creates an archive of several different types of records. You can reimport this data if necessary. Importing archived data does not overwrite existing data it adds the archived records back into the database. Records that are archived and can be re-imported include the following:

  1. Navigate to one of the views listed above.
  2. Click Import.
  3. Select the archive from the drop-down list. The archives are listed by date with the name of the view at the beginning. For example, for the Connections View the archive would have the following format: DYNAMICLOG_Archive_YY_MM_DD.bua.gz
  4. Click OK.

Some archive files can be quite large and make take several minutes to import. A progress dialog is displayed as the import is taking place. A message is displayed when the import is complete.
