Tech Tip – PingFederate – How to manage configuration archive creation and retention policies ?

PingIdentity

Ping Federate creates a time-stamped configuration archive as a backup automatically every time you log on to the administrative console and before an existing archive is imported.

The default archival and retention policies could be changed by modifying configuration file “org.sourceid.saml20.domain.mgmt.impl.DataArchiveBackup.xml” located at :

<pingfederate>\server\default\data\config-store

Sample config file :

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<c:config xmlns:c=”http://www.sourceid.org/2004/05/config”>
<c:item name=”ScheduledBackupEnabled”>false</c:item>
<!– Time is local and of the format “hh:mm:ss”. Defaults to midnight. –>
<c:item name=”BackupTime”>00:00:00</c:item>
<c:item name=”BackupOnAdminLogin”>true</c:item>
<c:item name=”NumTriesWithIntegrityFailure”>3</c:item>
<c:item name=”MaxOldArchiveFiles”>25</c:item>
</c:config>
