Archiving transaction data, such as order, event, and pending signature-related data protects critical data. Archiving conserves database disk space and file system disk space, which improves the efficiency of EBICS Client.
An EBICS Client admin can configure a lifespan for transaction data on Sterling B2B Integrator. After the transaction data exceeds its lifespan, the Backup business process service moves the data into a physical media. The data can be restored later to the restore tables. The Backup business process service can be run either by schedule or manually. Archiving transaction data is a resource-intensive activity. Therefore, it is recommended to perform the activity during off-peak hours.
The Restore business process service restores archived transactional data from physical media to a restored data location, where it can be searched and viewed.
