Address Manager v9.3.0 introduces the capability to export the audit data or transaction history to an external system, such as a SIEM, and improve the user experience around archive/purge, thereby maintaining BAM's database size and overall health. This enables you to offload the non-operational data from the database to ensure efficiency and reliability.
The capability of managing audit data export and retention settings is achieved in BAM via the following two settings under Audit Data Settings in the user interface:
- Audit Data Retention - Controls the retention of audit data in the BAM database
- Audit Data Export - Exports audit data to an external database
Note: Audit Data Retention deletes the BAM database data, while Audit Data Export only copies the information and never deletes it.
