Pinned topic Installed Guardium Policy History

‏2013-04-17T18:17:08Z |

I am hoping to configure a Guardium Query/Report that shows a history of Installed Policies.  We would like to be aware if a new policy has been installed or if an existing policy is re-installed.

I am aware of the Tools -> Report Building -> Installed Policy Tracking: Number of installed policies Query/Report, but that Query/Report appears just to provide details of the currently installed policy - i.e., it will not tell you the different policies that were installed 1 week ago or 1 month ago.

I am also aware of the Tools -> Report Building -> Guardium Activity Tracking:  Policy Changes Query/Report, but that Query/Report appears just to provide details regarding modifications to any Policy - e.g. Rule 6 of Policy N was modified.

Does a delivered Query/Report exist that provides a history of Installed Policies?  If not, what would be the approach for developing such a Query/Report?

Thanks,
Bruce Driver

    Bruce,

    I am in the same 'predicament'  as you.  Did you ever determine how to create a report of a historic view of installed policies/rules?

    Thanks,

    One method would be to clone the "Detailed Guardium User Activity" and add the criteria "Modified_Entity = GDM_INSTALLED_POLICY_HEADER".

    cbg1,

    Thanks - that worked like a charm!  Where is the 'like' button for your response?

    Mike,

    Since my post, I discovered that my initial conclusion about the Tools -> Report Building -> Guardium Activity Tracking:  Policy Changes Query/Report was not complete.

    I discovered that the delivered Tools -> Report Building -> Guardium Activity Tracking:  Policy Changes Query/Report will show if a new policy has been installed or if an existing policy is re-installed.

    Thanks,

    Bruce
